Velopresso – Coffee Cart On Wheels

If you’re going to spend a lot on fancy coffee, you should at least get that coffee in a fun and/or interesting way.

Enter: The Velopresso


The Velopresso is a coffee cart on wheels, designed to stay off the grid while enabling a single barista to run the entire operation. The cart itself was designed from the ground up around a custom rear-steer tricycle, a unique pedal-driven grinder, and a robust gas-fired lever espresso machine. The result is a fusion of human power, sensory pleasures and technology – old tech meets new tech, pedal power meets caffeine power, and engineering meets aesthetics.

And since there’s no motors to run or electricity needed, the Velopress doesn’t make a lot of noise, meaning you can have your coffee in relative silence as you enjoy the scenery around you.

If you’re interested in buying your own Velopresso, they’re taking pre-orders in early Summer of 2013, though the company is based out of the UK, so you may need to factor in some shipping if your coffee dreams take you elsewhere.

Photojojo Wrap-Around-The-Corner-Frame

Photojojo’s Wrap-Around-The-Corner-Frame is a new way to display your photos that will definitely force you to think outside the box when behind the lens.

By taking your photos into a third dimension, the Wrap-Around-The-Corner-Frame allows you to get creative with what will wrap and how it will add extra depth to your ideas, and you can put photos where photos have never belonged before.

The frame itself holds up to 12 different photos, and is made of espresso stained and lacquered wood for a strong and durable finish that will look good on just about any corner.
