Belkin and Mr. Coffee want to brew your first pot via WiFi

Belkin is no stranger to home automation, introducing several products in that vein through its WeMo line. We already put the company's Crock-Pot through its paces, and now there's a WiFi-enabled coffee option, too. The Mr. Coffee smart coffee maker brews 10 cups of joe, controlled from the handy WeMo app on a phone or tablet. Using the mobile software, you can schedule brewing, monitor its status, turn the unit off/on and get alerts when it's time for a proper cleaning. It also boasts Optimal Brew tech that's said to brew faster while packing in more flavor (we'll be the judge of that). If you're itchin' to get the coffee going before you roll out of bed in the morning, the $150 kitchen gadget is available now. Of course, if money's no object, and you have serious caffeine habit, there's a semi-automated pour-over option that we're a bit fond of.
