Rugby Junior Tri Club has agreed sponsorship from locally-based Scanomat, home of the revolutionary TopBrewer - the world's first mobile or tablet activated coffee machine.
Junior Club Chairman John Austin said: "We are delighted to have Scanomat on board and the sponsorship received has meant we can subsidise the cost of our club tri suits, making them more affordable for members. Our club has nearly doubled in size, so to be able to do this is a fantastic boost."
Simon Bracken, Managing Director of Scanomat UK said: "Triathlon is a relatively new sport, it is great to be able to support such a thriving club and perhaps even some of our future triathlon Olympians. At Scanomat we pride ourselves on 'innovation not imitation' and I'm sure these youngsters will definitely take the sport to new levels!"
The TopBrewer from Scanomat is a truly innovative commercial coffee concept. The sleek and stylish coffee tap has recently won an iF Design Award, and the TopBrewer app is unique in that it allows users to customise their own drinks and save them as their favourite.
Triathlon is three sports undertaken as one - swimming, cycling and running - if you are interested in taking part more information concerning the club's adult and junior sections can be found at www.rugbytriathlon.org.uk. You can join in with the Junior Club at their Sunday training sessions at Rugby School and participate in any or all of the disciplines.
“Imagine if you could switch on the heating, close the blinds and even control what your children are watching on TV — all from the touch of a button on your iPad.
Today a London company demonstrated how it could be commonplace in the future by creating the capital’s ultimate techy home.
The Evening Standard was given a sneak preview of the two-storey showhouse in Fitzrovia, which cost £1.4 million to create and features about £500,000 worth of equipment. It has been created to show how technology can simplify people’s lives.
Everything — including music, coffee machines, CCTV, heating and cinema — is synced to a centralised system controlled from an app on a phone or iPad. To use it, owners select which room they want to control from a plan of the 4,000 sq ft house.
Touch screen: the creators say the iPad brand gives people confidence in the technology. It can be operated remotely, from work or when the owners are out, so they can see what is going on, prepare the house for when they get home or control what their children are watching on television.
The operating system was designed and created by home automation company Cornflake, which built the house as its showroom.
It also features pop-up TV screens, an iPad-controlled coffee machine, a revolving dance floor, a cinema, mirror TVs and the world’s first ultra-HD TV.”
We are very excited to announce that Scanomat UK have recently become members of the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM), the professional body for Facilities Managers in the UK. We’re sure that this new found relationship will help spread the word about the revolutionary TopBrewer, the world’s first iPhone controlled coffee machine, amongst the Facilities Management community, plus build on the already growing demand for the TopBrewer in offices across Britain. As part of our membership we were delighted to showcase the TopBrewer at the Facilities Show at the NEC last week (14th – 16th May), where it received a great reception from the industry.
