This Jell-O Shot Keurig Will Make You Wish You Were Still In College (Photos)
Nothing brings back memories of college like slinging back a few delicious Jell-O shots.
While you may miss your days of downing the tasty treats at every frat party on campus, you probably don’t miss the hours it took to prepare them.
Trust me, I’ve made more than enough Jell-O shots in my day to know making these things is actually a huge, time-consuming pain in the ass.
Luckily, a new machine called the Jevo is here to answer all of our party animal prayers.
Created by Food and Beverage Innovations, this clever contraption is an automated shot maker that can crank out 20 of your beloved Jell-O shots with the push of a button.
In a way, this new invention is pretty much a Keurig machine that isn’t afraid to turn up.
In addition to Jell-O shots, the Jevo can make chilled cocktails, and the pods come in all sorts of delicious flavors, like cherry and piña colada.
If that’s not impressive enough, it has a self-cleaning feature and comes with a touchscreen and WiFi.
While it seems like this gadget is geared more toward commercial use in bars and clubs, it’s only a matter of time before the Jevo becomes a frat house staple.
Take a look at the pictures below to see this awesome Jell-O shot machine.
The Jevo uses individual pods to make each round of shots in all sorts of mouthwatering flavors.
And it can make up to 20 shots in just 10 minutes!

THE RISE OF ANDROID: How a flailing startup became the world’s biggest computing platform
In 2004, Andy Rubin made an urgent call to his friend, Steve Perlman.
Rubin’s startup, Android, was in trouble, he explained. Rubin didn’t like asking for money again, but the situation was dire.
Android, which was creating mobile software for phones, was out of cash, and other investors weren’t biting.
Perlman agreed to wire some funds as soon as possible.
“Maybe a little sooner would be better,” Rubin said nervously. Rubin had already missed payments on Android’s office space, and the landlord was threatening to evict him.
Perlman went to the bank and withdrew $10,000 in $100 bills and handed them to Rubin. The next day, he wired over an undisclosed amount of money to provide the seed funding for Android.
“I did it because I believed in the thing, and I wanted to help Andy,” Perlman told Business Insider.
With the new cash, Rubin got Android back on track. He secured more funding and moved the team into a larger office in Palo Alto, California, a technology hub on the West Coast.
Today, Android powers about 85% of all smartphones globally, while the iPhone accounts for only 11%. It’s making a push into wristwatches, cars, and TVs. It’s not hard to envision a time when Android will be in every single device from stove and thermostats to toothbrushes.
To grab 85% of the smartphone market, Rubin had to beat the two most valuable, and profitable, technology companies of their era: Microsoft and Apple. He had to fight entrenched wireless carriers. He had to get phone makers to buy into its radical vision.
Rubin didn’t do it alone. He got help from investors such as Perlman and big support from Google.
Based on interviews that Business Insider conducted with several sources who were there at the beginning, the following is the story of how Android came to be.
