Designer’s lab and kitchen mashups include spectrometer coffee maker

By on February 5, 2014

British designer Alex Duffner has put together a line of household appliances that do more than just cook or bake. One of them, a coffee maker, doubles as a spectrometer, according to Wired UK.

The filter on the coffee maker can be replaced with a spectrometer tube. This tube contains bits of CD and a tiny webcam to refract and absorb light.

The idea for the coffee maker, and other inventions, came from Duffner’s visits to the CERN particle physics laboratory in Switzerland. There, he says, the scientists explained many of the complex technologies with kitchen analogies.
