Diary: This is the future of tea

Diary: This is the future of tea

In recognition of this, Jam's Steven Craig and Matt Evans have created Teasweetbot - a Twitter-enabled system that switches the kettle on if you Tweet #popthekettleon to @teasweetbot. The pair have also built a robot arm out of Lego and other stuff to turn the kettle on. This may seem like quite a lot of effort, but the implications are seismic. If Craig and Evans can figure out how to turn the snooker on the telly at the same time, then they could be on to a winner.
