New machine's born.
Named Revolucion by La vida Espresso in south korea.
It's possible to control full pressure profile. And have perfect temperature accuracy.
For the showing, it have a concept costume.

Maybe it will made with 1 group head version, but for only commercial use.

Anyway, it look so great!

I saw this as well. I Just went to the Cafe Show today. Looks cool, hard to say about accuracy of temperature. Kind of like a cross between Synesso and Mistral. Electronics controller for temps in a separate unit located below counter area. Will post pics this weekend.

Feature set sounds awesome, but how gawdy is that? geez...
I know I've pulled a great shot when the flavour is 'like a beany taste that tastes like a bean'.

Even more kind of like a cross between a Synesso and a General Electric GEnx 2-B turbofan aircraft engine.

I can hear my wife now... "I'll buy it if you dust it."

It looks like something an art, industrial-design double major would design who never cleaned house or made espresso. Maybe the machine is dishwasher safe? Submersible? Probably not.

Of course practicality can take a back seat in "concept" versions, where attention-getting visuals are more important. And it's always nice to see imagination at work.

Still, ever since the original CD consortium touted "perfect sound forever" I run for cover whenever "perfection" - especially relative to any analog measurement - is promised.

The instagram photos make it look even scarier to keep clean. Its like H.R. Giger designed an espresso machine.

Looks like something from the old Dune movie. Time to fold space for Arrakis and get more spice but watch out for the worms... Sounds like a bad acid trip combined with Metsacal tequila worm's

I add some more pictures.

Yeh, It's design is just concept. Don't worry about clean issue of it. :)
I think its mass products will be weared more popular costume.

You can see lighting pressure gauge behind half visible panel on it.
Half visible panel work as a mirror like slayer's one. But more larger.

First day for showing, It encountered some extraction problems but at now, I heard it work pretty fine.

I curious that the future of this machines.
It so cool and quite cheap than others have similar porfomance.
So I'll keep my fingers cross for it's future.
Enjoy! Espresso! Http://
