Filter this! This coffee system offers cold brew on the go

Move over French Press, drip, and single-serve java machines; a new coffee maker is on the grinding block. BodyBrew claims its Bod coffee system, which uses a patented, cold-brew infusion technology, delivers a more distilled, less oily and acidic Cup o’ Joe than conventional, heat-based methods. It’s not a taste everyone prefers over hot-brewed coffee, but Bod’s portability might make it attractive to cold-brew enthusiasts.

The Bod’s inventors make a lot of bold claims beyond its coffee’s slightly sweeter, more concentrated taste. Percolating flavor from beans in this way creates a less acidic cup of coffee; it may reduce stomach upset and discoloration of tooth enamel, according to BodyBrew.

To get your coffee on, pour coarsely ground coffee into the stainless steel filter and brew chamber with cold water. Next, attach the built-in, 24-ounce Bean Kanteen, and after 12 to 24 hours (you’ll definitely need to plan ahead), flip the device. The coffee extract instantly passes into the container, which can store between 8 and 12 servings of coffee extract. For hot cups, pour the preferred amount of extract into a receptacle and dilute to taste with heated water. Iced-coffee fans can drench the extract over ice, water, and milk.

The curvaceous, hourglass-shaped vessel is portable, too. Accessories including a six-ounce Bean Kanteen and 3.4-ounce Baby Bean Kanteen, to make on-the-go coffee pick-me-ups possible.

Constructed out of Tritan plastic, the Bod is designed to be spill-, shatter-, and leak-proof, and the contraption’s parts can be dismantled for dishwashing. Available in four colors (ice blue, cool grey, stealth-black, arctic-white), pre-orders for the Bod ($59) begin March 23.

At long last, Amazon brings AI features to Alexa
Amazon SVP of Devices and Services Dave Limp demonstrates the Let's Chat feature of Alexa, powered by AI.

Nearly a year after ChatGPT introduced the world to the uncannily human possibilities of generative AI, Amazon has unveiled new Alexa features powered by large language models (LLM). At the annual Amazon Devices Event hosted at its new Arlington, Virginia, headquarters, the company announced some major Alexa improvements that will attempt to make replies much more conversational and lifelike, with less waiting time between your interactions and more meaningful replies.

A new feature called Let's Chat mimics the ChatGPT experience by allowing you to have a fluid conversation with Alexa, asking questions about everything from the voice assistant's football team allegiance to recipes. You can even ask it to write emails for you. In the demo with Dave Limp, outgoing senior vice president of devices and services, Alexa sometimes stalled and needed a second prompt to answer questions, suggesting the feature may still need some polish.
