Hanging with Gizmodo

OnLatte on Gizmodo

Lex and I had a great time hanging out with Chris Mascari of Gizmodo today, and he took a turn printing out a custom logo. Seems like a fun line of work (although timing it seems like timing is everything) and Chris was a great sport throughout. Here is a link to his post on Gizmodo, and here is a photo of him and his creation.

Thanks Chris!

OnLatte on the BBC!

On Monday, the BBC stopped by and did nice little spot on the Latte Art printer that we have on display at SIGGRAPH ’08. We aren’t too sure when the spot will be aired yet, but they said it will mostly likely be on the Thursday evening news. We will update the post when we know more information, and when it’s on bbc.co.uk.

Here are some photos of the shoot:

It works on so many levels

Noodle on this one

This is one of my favorite photos that Lex and I have ever been in. Take a second to look and see if you can figure out why it is great:

Give up? Okay, let’s break it down:

1. As you can see, there is a lovely image printed on a cup of Java by the Latte Art Printer.

2. Hey cool! It’s the Java logo.

3. Whoa, wait a minute! It’s James Gosling the father of the Java programming language!

Around lunch time, Mr. Gosling stopped by our New Tech Demo booth at Siggraph ’08 and we had a blast showing off the printer and chatting with him for a while. My personal favorite was listening to him and Lex go back and forth on the nitty gritty technology about how the printer is built; and the stories of past projects he was involved in. It was truly great meeting; such a gracious and supportive man, and we can’t thank him enough for taking the time. Who knows, maybe we will meet him at the next JavaOne conference and … Okay, not going to finish that joke :)

Here is James Gosling’s weblog and we are on it!
