The Miracle Machine claims it requires just three days to turn water into wine using an intricate process that "brings together Silicon Valley technology and Napa Valley wine expertise," according to Miracle Machine's website

The wine's maturing process, which is reportedly sped up through the application of heat in a controlled environment, can be monitored using the company's iPhone or Android app. Users can also experiment with recipes as they venture into creating their own wines, according to the company.
Inside the fermentation chamber, "electrical sensors, transducers, heaters and pumps ... provide a controlled environment for the primary and, as needed, secondary fermentation stages," the Miracle Machine's website explains. "Meanwhile an ultrasonic transducer ... effectively [speeds] up the flavor development of the wine. Each of these components, and others, are connected to an Arduino microcontroller that ensures the Miracle Machine is doing its job of making a fine wine of your creation in just a matter of days."
The urn-like device is currently in the development phase. According to its inventors, it will soon be on Kickstarter to raise additional funds for the project, Newsy.com reported
When released on the market, the wine-maker will cost $499. However, its creators say it will save users significant amounts of money over time, considering it will create a $20 bottle of wine with just $2 worth of ingredients, Discovery News reported
"We joked about the wine to water miracle and how with today's technology it would not only be possible, but likely," Boyer told TheDailyMeal.com
. "The result is a miniaturized version of the exact same process that wine goes through in the best wine regions around the world. We were both surprised at how good it tastes."
