This invention was due to be launched on 1 April 2006, but it seems that several competitors are close to releasing similar products…


Revolutionary new invention for translators…

Plug & Percolate Computer-Assisted Coffee Maker

Available in both USB and wireless versions.

The easy to install software quietly monitors keyboard and mouse activity and estimates your blood caffeine level by means of a patent high-tech self-learning algorithm. When critical values are reached immediate pop-up friendly on-screen comfort is provided:

"Hang on in there: coffee's on its way"

A few seconds later a familiar fragrance fills the air, shortly followed by the pleasure of a smooth tasting cup of pure ground roasted delight. Your invigorated fingers trip lightly on the keyboard once more as inspiration and productivity soar to new heights.

Compatible with all leading CAT tools.

British localized version also available:

Plug & Brew Computer-Assisted Tea Maker with its heartening "buck up old bean: a cuppa's on its way".
