Remember when devices didn’t connect to the internet? Remember when every gadget that launched didn’t come with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi enabled? Do gadgets even still work without an app?

Prisma, a new device that launched on Indiegogo yesterday, brews cold brew coffee in 10 minutes. While typical cold brew requires steeping ground coffee for 10 to 12 hours, the Prisma relies on a "specialized vacuum infusion process" to speed things up. It doesn’t connect to Wi-Fi. It doesn’t come with Bluetooth. It doesn’t even have a companion app. Bold choices. Nope, it’s literally a machine that you put coffee beans into and end up with a cup of coffee later.
