Y Combinator Mixes In Smoothie Startup LivBlends

TechCrunch • Aug. 1, 2014

It doesn’t have a name yet, but it promises to be a Keurig-like smoothie maker without the messy cleanup of most juicers. Designed by a team of MIT engineers, including Udomphol, the machine is a self-cleaning blender that can process fruits, seeds, veggies and nuts within 30 seconds.
