Jesus did it, so why can’t someone make an app for it? That’s what the Miracle Machine aims to accomplish. The water to wine feat. In just three days, you can take water, along with some other ingredients (what, they didn’t claim to be miracle workers) and have ready made wine in the comfort of your home.
The device isn’t for sale just yet, but co-founders Philip James and Kevin Boyer will be turning to Kickstarter to fund the project. Early converts will only have to tithe $299 for the machine. The rest of us heathens will have to fork over the retail price of $499 when it hits the virtual shelves. The price you pay to impress your friends with your coffee table winery. James and Boyer explained how they came up with the idea.
“We joked about the wine to water miracle and how with today’s technology it would not only be possible, but likely,” said Boyer, who also owns CustomVines, a custom wine label making company with James. “The result is a miniaturized version of the exact same process that wine goes through in the best wine regions around the world. We were both surprised at how good it tastes.”
Amateur winemakers will be able to choose from a variety of blends. Customer will be able to buy from the website or Amazon and select from Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, an aged Tuscan blend, Sauvignon Blanc, and Burgundy varieties.
The entire process will be tied to your smartphone via an app, so you can monitor the progress. Of course, you could always go to the local store and buy a bottle. But, you wouldn’t have this cool looking machine in your house. Stay tuned for the next trick. Walking on water with Google Glass. I’m sure they are thinking it up.
