Do you remember the Trashcan Mac? Someone made a coffee machine concept out of it.

While comparing the 2013 Mac Pro to a trash can might have been a little mean in hindsight, its shiny cylindrical exterior translates well to a coffee machine, according to this concept from Young Geon Ahn.

Check out Apple Drip – a concept caffeine dispensing machine that brews “the best coffee Apple has ever made” if Tim Cook were to take the stage to showcase such a device. It reverses Jony Ive’s unique design and transforms a poorly received desktop computer into a tabletop brewer, with a dispensing nozzle that slides out to dispense coffee and slides into the machine, flush with the cylindrical surface when not in use. not operational.

The Apple Drip officially becomes the first Apple concept we’ve seen designed for the kitchen. Truth be told, Apple’s brand of minimalism fits just about anywhere, after all, a HomePod looks pretty darn good in a kitchen, right?

The Apple Drip is similar in style to the Ember mug (fun fact, Ember lead designer Robert Brunner has worked extensively at Apple) with a sleek black design that feels both mysterious and approachable. Simple, but professional. The black cylinder comes with a touchscreen interface on its top edge, with just three buttons – a power button, a temperature button and a coffee dispense button. Designed to work (we assume) with an app or even Siri, the Drip dispenses coffee into a sleek cup that sits in its designated spot on a larger rectangular platform. From the looks of it, the Drip even comes with a home button on its nozzle, although what that does is anyone’s guess.

Although clearly conceptual, Apple Drip is a fun design prompt for hackers and YouTubers, giving them the ability to turn existing (and outdated) products into fun alternatives. Does anyone intend to build it? If you do, do me a favor and call it something smart like the iCedLatte Pro or something…
