The Source, from ExtractCraft, is now available for pre-order!
Lee Sutherland, one of the founders of TinkerMill, thought up The Source, an essential oil extraction smart appliance, back in late 2013. Scott Converse, the original founder of TinkerMill, heard Lee's description of it and said: "that could be a very cool product."
And now, it is.
