Welcome to the future, friends.

Gone are the boring old days where you had to eat fruit and y'know chew it like a common wench. And forget about shoving all that fruit in a blender and making smoothies? What are you, a goblin? Sod that.

You're living in 2017 now, folks, so now it's time to get your hands on an Alchema, a miraculous machine that has the incredible ability to transform fruit into a delicious cider at the press of a button. Easy-peasy lemon-squeezy, literally.

Unfortunately the Alchema doesn't actually exist yet, it's part of a Kickstarter campaign that is currently seeking funding. You'll need to donate $299 (£245.75) if you want to get your hands on one but there are more deals the more you pay.

When you get your machine, you simply add fruit, water, yeast and sugar and then press the button. In one to two weeks you'll have a fresh batch of homemade cider ready to drink. Delicious.

Even better, the Alchema can make wine if you have access to wine grapes and a tonne of patience. It takes 16 weeks for that though, and you could make 8 batches of cider in that time!

The machine can make three bottles of wine at a time, which is plenty to last you while the next batch is getting cooked up! Perfect!

What do you reckon? Do you think you could find a way to use this incredible contraption?

We've already put it on our Christmas 2017 wishlist!

You can preorder it here.
