I’m ambivalent when it comes to the robotic age we’re living through. Sometimes it alarms me how fast we’re moving by way of AI. But, with that said, I can’t deny the that Meticulous has created a robot that I’d happily invite into my home, making space in my kitchen next to my Alexa and my Roomba, of course.

Utilizing ten digital sensors, this espresso maker monitors and adjusts the temperature, pressure, and even weight of the liquid to ensure that each brew matches your desired temperature to reduce any human error in the process. Not only does it take the guesswork out of the process, it has an accompanying app to finetune the brew to your exact specifications, making it a bespoke experience with every shot pulled.

With a design that matches the futuristic cup of joe, it’s easy to see a brand like Meticulous taking over the market share in high-end, tech-integrated brewing. And I’d gladly welcome our robot overlords as long as I get my Americano in the morning.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
