Wi-Fi Connected Juicer

Life has gotten a little easier for the juice-loving super-rich. For a mere $700 they can now buy the Juicero — the world's first wi-fi connected juicer.

Oddly, the device can't actually juice produce from a store or farm. Instead, you have to buy packages of pre-cut vegetables/fruits from the Juicero company (adding to the cost). The device then squeezes the veggies inside the proprietary packs, so the only clean-up required is to discard the used pack. The device automatically orders more packs when you're about to run out (this is the purpose of the wi-fi connection).

I think I'll stick with snacking on non-squeezed raw vegetables — cheaper, minimal clean-up, and (I believe) healthier than juice.

You're entirely right on the vegetable front, Alex. Who needs carrot juice when you can ask what's up, Doc?

This would be right at home on the counter next to the fur-lined triple sink.

When the truck backs up to your house to unload the pallets of convenient juicer packs, you get a jewel-studded sledghammer to smash it with.

Heretics! Pagans! Devil worshipers!

Juice is the blood of plants. Deuteronomy 12:23: "Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood is the life" (KJV). No decent, upstanding, God-fearing person touches the stuff!

For those with more money than they know what to do with. I could save them all the trouble by disposing of it for them.

I'm afraid the inventor isn't much of an advertisement for his product.

I'm sure it will sell well to the Keurig users. Somewhat the same inane technology.

1) How is this any different than if they cold-pressed the blood, I mean 'juice,' from the veggies and sent you that in a bag?

2) Could you open the bag, insert your own ingredients, and reseal it? Cold pressing is how they make olive oil -- I'd like to see if one of these units could be adapted, so you could chop up a rattler and make snake oil.

Love the snake oil comment!

Strangely, the device looks like a sawn front half of a toilet seat!

There is a guy at work who keeps a juicer here. He will spend about 20-30 minutes juicing 3kg of carrots. Imagine how pleasant that sound is while trying to eat.
