Our consumption and need for food is taken care by technology at a very enormous speed.
Just too tired to make yourself a cup of coffee to satisfy the need to quench caffeine urge? IBM has solved that lethargic problem and has developed a state-of-art technology for a coffee delivery drone that predicts when you need a caffeine boost. With the detection of the caffine need, the drone is at service to deliver a hot cup of coffee.
According to the latest report, IBM has secured a copyright for a coffee drone that drops off coffee when it monitors certain facial, body, and biometric data to determine when people nearby may be in the mood for a drink. That is to say, it could either connect to your FitBit to sense if you’re losing energy, or it could even just use a camera to notice you’re nodding off based on your body language. Or it can take a help of Bluetooth or other GPS data from a device like your phone to ensure its hovering over the right person.
“IBM encourages our researchers to pursue their interests even though not all of their inventions become commercial products,” said spokeswoman Amanda Carl. “By publishing their inventions as patents, we give our researchers the recognition they deserve and make their work public, so it can inspire new innovations.”
