The Ultimate in Woo: The Heart-Bean

You're not going to believe this: presenting... (drum roll, please)... the Heart-Bean:
Emerging from the wildly innovative art school Bezalel in Jerusalem is Heart-Beans, a coffee grinder which when you hold it close to your body, like a baby, grinds coffee based on the rhythm of your heart.

. . .

It’s pretty cool. It’s pretty smart. Everyone loves coffee - ‘cept for those snooty tea drinkers. And it’s technology with heart as you can see in the video below... It’s the robot that fulfills your innermost desire. In this case, coffee. Deep, rich and dark, from the bottom of your heart (beat). Ground with love - or whatever else you’ve got brewing inside."
Oh, baby! Spin for me!

-Wes

PS: Be sure to see the videos: for guys here and gals here. Have a great weekend!

Totally cool, though seems the tree huggers have sacrificed a fairly large bit of tree to make this device...

So, it's a self-reinforcing device...first you grind coffee (and drink it), your heart rate rises, so you grind coffee faster, your heart rate goes up some more...
