Why buy almond milk when you can make it yourself? Wait, we know what you’re going to say. “It takes too long!” you protest, “It’s too hard!” Complain no longer. There is a new system on the market that wants to address all your nut milk (and nut butter) making worries. It’s called NutraMilk and it promises to help you make these delicious, health-conscious products in 12 minutes or less.

Thanks to NutraMilk’s “patented, revolutionary method” of extracting milk (or rather, making milk) from just about any kind of nut, you can treat yourself to almond, cashew, pecan, or other delicious beverages in a matter of minutes rather than hours (or even days). The NutraMilk is patented, BPA free, and UL certified, and takes just 12 minutes to make up to 12 liters of nut milk.

So how does it work? NutraMilk promises that only three steps stand between you and a healthful treat. First, add nuts to the system, set the timer, and press the “butter” button if you’re looking to make nut butter. Then, add water and press the “mix” button. From there, you simply need to dispense the finished product.

Cleanup also promises to be a breeze as each of the NutraMilk components is dishwasher-safe and can be easily disassembled. But don’t worry — just because it’s easy to use doesn’t mean it can’t hold up to consistent usage. Rather, NutraMilk says that it is built to commercial standards and can withstand “heavy daily use.”

“Whether you’re in the mood to sip on coffee with hazelnut milk or munch on some toast with a warm almond butter spread, this innovative machine can make it all,” the NutraMilk system claims on its Kickstarter page. You can get creative, too: Should you choose to venture away from nuts, you can add sesame seeds or rice and see what comes of that process.

You can pre-order the NutraMilk from Kickstarter for the early-bird price of $210, with an estimated delivery date of October.

Elizabeth Warren says screw your ISP. Let’s make the internet a public utility
Elizabeth Warren

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) announced a plan to increase rural and low-income internet access by creating what she called a “public option for broadband."

In a Medium post published Wednesday, Warren laid out a plan to bring a broadband connection to every American home for a reasonable price. The proposition would allow local governments to essentially treat the internet like a public utility, and includes giving municipalities the right to build broadband network.

Volkswagen says no thanks to outsiders as it develops its own operating system
Volkswagen ID pre-production prototype

While some automakers are turning to tech giants like Intel and Google to develop in-car software, the Volkswagen Group believes it makes more sense to take the matter into its own hands. It plans to assemble an international team of more than 5,000 digital experts to develop a modular operating system named vw.os. It will make its debut in the electric ID.3 (pictured) scheduled to break cover at the 2019 Frankfurt Auto Show before gradually spreading to every model in the group's portfolio by 2025.

Volkswagen's growing Car.Software unit will be responsible for at least 60% of the group's software development efforts by 2025, up from about 10% in 2019. The division will split its work into five key areas: Operating system and connectivity, intelligent body and cockpit, automated driving, vehicle, and energy performance, plus service platforms and mobility services.

In a hurry? Dry your clothes in just 15 minutes with this countertop dryer
morus zero low energy heat countertop dryer

Everyone knows the panic that sets in when you're running late in the morning. You wake up, brush your teeth, take the world's fastest shower, and rush towel-clad through the house only to discover you forgot to put the clothes on to dry. And short of wasting a ton of electricity drying only the necessities, there's nothing you can do but wait. Until now, that is. A new device from Kickstarter aims to provide a better, more energy-efficient solution.

The Morus Zero Countertop Dryer claims to dry clothing in just 15 minutes through the use of trademarked vacuum dehydration technology. The Morus Zero is claimed to use only 40% of the energy of a traditional tumble dryer while still getting the job done with lower temperatures. This means the energy benefits extend beyond what the dryer itself uses; with lower temperatures, your HVAC system won't struggle to keep the home cool while your clothes heat up. But perhaps best of all, the lower temperatures reduce the chance of heat damage to clothing. No more losing your favorite shirt to shrinkage.
