I was waiting in a reception area the other day that had a coffee machine on free vend. It was a fancy looking device and I was thirsty so I pressed the button for a coffee. It was then I noticed something unusual, it wasn’t that the machine had an LCD as lots of coffee machines have displays these days. It was the fact that the LCD was displaying a progress bar as it prepared the coffee.
I don’t know if the makers of this machine were aware but all coffee machines have a progress bar. When the funny dark liquid makes its way to the top of the white container the coffee is ready.
How did we ever cope.
