A lot of people stop by Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts every morning on their way to work. These stops can be time-consuming, costly and often crowded.

CafeX debuted an alternative option: a robot barista. Order from a kiosk or your smartphone to get precision-made espresso drinks for less than $3.

The average time for this industrial robotic arm to make a coffee? Twenty seconds. Once your order is ready, the machine will send you a personal identification number to your phone that allows you to pick it up.
