Israeli-based company Ripples has now launched its 3D coffee printing gadget in Europe.
The Ripple Maker 3D ink-jet printer is a Wi-Fi enabled device that fits onto countertop with a small 8.5” x 10.5” footprint. This can print out images or messages on foam topped drinks using pods filled with coffee extract made from coffee beans.
The maker adjusts automatically to a wide range of coffee cups up to 7” high and 4.5” wide, to produce ripples that fit the diameter of the selected cup. Each ripple should print in just a few seconds.
Ripples’ content library has hundreds of images and messages to choose from, and new images are constantly uploaded in real-time to the cloud.
The Ripple Maker is available in European markets, starting with the UK and Germany, and these will be followed by France, Italy, The Netherlands and Eastern Europe by the end of 2017.
Yossi Meshulam, co-founder and CEO of Ripples Inc, commented: “We are thrilled to bring Ripples to the European market. Thanks to the incredible success that we’ve experienced in North America and following some amazing projects with big brands around the world, we now have strong demand to expand into Europe. We look forward to creating some truly inspirational consumer memories and impactful marketing campaigns.”
The Ripple Maker will be showcased at Host Milan on 20-24 October at Pavilion 14, stand G39.
