I have completely redesigned the machine and have added quite a bit of features.
New casing painted much like a car in metallic espresso brown, silver and red with a clear coat on top of it
A manual over-ride that allows you to control the autospout
Touch screen with two modes basic settings for normal people who just want an easy cup of coffee and advanced mode for people like us who want to fiddle with every setting possible
Recipes that will be stored in the interface
Auto on and brew in the morning
Brew volume from 4 ounces to 40 ounces
Adjustable PID temperature control
Removable pour over holder with magnets to keep it in place so you can use your chemex with it
Magnetic drip tray
Huge 84 ounce water tank
(Provisional Patent) Auto spout with adjustable pulse cycles, this includes the bloom time how long each pulse is and the time in between them and also the number of pulses.
My own pour over cone carafe and mug made from ceramic.
Comes with a #4 pour over cone that has a siphon in it to prevent dripping
(Provisional Patent) A grinder that grinds directly into the pour over cone and hooks up to the Automated pour over coffee machine that way you set how much coffee you want on the machine and then put it into the grinder and it grinds exactly how much you need

Interesting concept -combining auto drip convenience with manual pour over control.
I'd like to see a video.

there is a gif in the imugur album of the machine in action. You can also head over to reddit and check out what other people are saying. Click Here (www.reddit.com)

Unfortunately, it isn't really combining it, though.

It's a cool idea, but the control aspect is missing, especially considering that decisions with pourovers sometimes have to be made on the fly to compensate for a new coffee or a different grind. It's running water in a circle that is so wide, the blooming phase would be nonexistent. Does it just run water until all of it is gone? It's a machine that pours water in a circle that is significantly less flexible than my own hands. I don't think that's worth the convenience of not having to tip a kettle.

I don't presume that this machine would offer ALL the control of a manual pour over, but according to the features listed by the op, it should offer quite a bit more control than the nicer auto drip machines -thus combining the two.

The control aspect is defiantly not missing. This machine is all about precision and repeatability. It can adjust to any coffee and grind and then store all the information in a recipe that you can go back to later and repeat precisely

I don't know that I agree. More control with the pulsing cycles, sure. But the circular motion is an issue. I think I'd prefer a showerhead of a fetco over that circular stream. With a Moccamaster or the BonaVita equivalent, you can start it, stop it, let it bloom, agitate if you desire, and then allow the brew to finish. This seems like a really superfluous gadget.

I know you can stop & start a Moccamaster, but I didn't think it was programmable in that respect. Perhaps I'm mistaken in that. I've never used one. I do agree that a shower stream instead of a jet would be better.

I still think it's an interesting concept (some may disagree). How well the concept is executed is another matter entirely.
