the miracle machine
Now, we can turn wine into water. It sounds just too good to be true, but is it? I will let you decide. As an avid wine drinker (thanks family), I like searching about new wines and start-ups within that realm. Yesterday, I stumbled upon the Miracle Machine.
Almost two weeks ago, two wine industry mavens began marketing a home appliance they called “The Miracle Machine.” This machine will use concentrates, flavor packets and an various electrical sensors, transducers, heaters and pumps to make wine quickly and easily in your home.
Thanks to NPR, I discovered that this machine isn’t as awesome as it sounds. From NPR’s Water-To-Wine Machine Sound Too Good To Be True? Is It article, I found out this, “So we pushed and prodded and, guess what? We can now exclusively report the whole thing was a sham. Turns out, the Miracle Machine was a marketing ploy cooked up (or perhaps “fermented” would be a better word?) by, a public relations company, to promote their pro bono client of the year.”
All-in-all the machine is still in the funding stage and its inventors will soon launch a Kickstarter page to raise money. Along with the machine, the company is planning to offer all ingredients needed to create different types of wine through its website.
If you are interested in learning more about the product visit their website. Also note that the Miracle Machine is set to retail for about $500, but with bundled ingredients at only $2 a pack, it might just be worth it.
