A cup of freshly brewed steaming coffee without even leaving your chair during those late night gaming sessions — sounds like heaven, doesn't it? Well, seems like Ali Abbas aka the Cre8or, one of Germany's top case modders, had the same idea. The award-winning gaming case customisation artist showed off a Zotac gaming PC with an inbuilt coffee machine at the IMTOPT Tech event held in Munich recently.
Dubbed the MEKpresso, the case is a combination of gaming peripheral manufacturer Zotac's MEK1 Gaming PC and a Nespresso espresso machine and coffee machine. The MEK1 is a compact yet powerful gaming PC, making the mod to fit in a fully-working coffee maker. Zotac was so impressed that the mod was displayed in the official Zotac section of the convention. There were also Zotac branded cups for the coffee.
It's unlikely that we will see Zotac release the MEKpresso commercially any time soon, but if you ask us, it's a great idea. Who can say no to gaming or coffee, right?
The MEK1 is a powerful yet compact gaming PC powered by a 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and packs a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card, along with 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 1 TB SATA Hard drive. The MEK1 is VR and 4K ready.
