About the most useless invention I have ever seen. I will stick with my Diet Mountain Dew, just the way they make it, thank you.
 
2006-03-26 11:17:40 AM
So glad they finally offer me choices about my beverage...ya'know, like a grocery store does, or a vending machine...

Very silly.


Almost as silly as..... SNAKES ON A PLANE!
 
2006-03-26 11:18:35 AM
Only 49.95 per 6 pack

Inventor has obviously never heard of cost effectiveness
 
2006-03-26 11:19:11 AM
I think it's kind of cool. Probably too expensive to justify it, but still...it's an innovative idea.
 
2006-03-26 11:20:21 AM
virtually everyone under the age of 16 who has seen our Programmable Liquid Container technology gimmick is fascinated and excited by its usefulness and consumer appeal"

Voila!

Now all the kids at the grocery store with their moms will poke these pop bottles. Just like they poke holes in the plastic wrapped toilet paper and sealed baskets of fruit.

/was fun being a kid
//now I want to go do it

I don't know... fuschia vanilla-lime cola?
 
2006-03-26 11:25:18 AM
Ok... so how do you mix it? Shake the bottle, hand it to a friend, then lap it off the floor? I suppose they could add a swizzle-stick for an additional $0.35.
 
2006-03-26 11:29:41 AM
Does it come in anti-freeze flavor?
If so, Wal-mart should stock it.

That is, until a soda company decides to release a snake-flavored soda as a commercial tie-in to Snakes on a Plane.

I think they'd have problems shipping it; ya know, the bottrles are packed as tight as possible already, so how would they prevent breakage?
 
2006-03-26 11:34:08 AM
Where's the USB port?
 
2006-03-26 11:35:05 AM
So farking stupid . . . the under 30 crowd will buy it and think they are cutting edge . . . so farking stupid.

FTA:
"This technology simplifies manufacturing, distribution, promotion and sales by allowing a single container to replace a series of product varieties."

That IS cost effective.
 
2006-03-26 11:37:28 AM
Uh, I used to do this when I was a kid at the 7-11. We called it a 'Suicide'. Buy a large drink and mix whatever different sodas you want at the fountain.

The result was pretty gross usually. We just liked the idea of it.
 
2006-03-26 11:37:59 AM
Chloe's gonna open a socket and HAXXOR teh soda!!!1

Then why isn't it cheaper? People will just buy the soda they like better anyways.

What's to stop someone from pushing all the buttons on all of the bottles on the shelf?

Think of all the flavors/colors NOT used . . . stupid waste. Stupid idea.

Did I say stupid yet?

WE'VE GOT MUTHAFARKIN' FLAVORS IN THE MUTHAFARKIN' SODA!

It probably will be cost effective.. one container for every drink -- you just have to advertise that instead of ads for diet, cherry, vanilla.. extra caffine or whatever.

See, it's not just production that could be cheaper, but the whole business model.

It isn't cheaper now because it's not being mass produced.. if Pepsi/Coke decide to run with this, it would be a huge streamlining of their operations. Only need to make/distrubite one product.

I have a friend that combined many different sodas and some fruit punch to create Mountain Dew Code Red.

We have no idea how that happened, and have not been able to reproduce the results.

/Scans article again
//Nope, doesn't list a price
 
2006-03-26 11:45:54 AM
I'd be pretty much taping the caffiene button down.
 
2006-03-26 11:46:44 AM
It'd be cheaper just to buy a regular soda and a bag of Skittles to dump in.

Just be sure to only dump in compatible colors, or you get this nasty "black water" look. Still tastes good, though. When you're baked. Or have drunk too much cough syrup. As I may have. Done.
 
2006-03-26 11:47:31 AM
Meh. It's just Crystal Pepsi with some syrup and food coloring.
 
2006-03-26 11:47:32 AM
I am wondering why everybody seems to think they know the price of this product, the website clearly says nothing
 
2006-03-26 11:47:33 AM
beer?
 
2006-03-26 11:47:35 AM
How long before some programmer geek finds a way to get the caffiene module out of the bottle, break it open, and snort the contents?
 
2006-03-26 11:48:37 AM
Huh... these guys do medical stuff, including an "RNA Editing" method. And are designing a 3 demensional keyboard. Random.

Finally a colored sugar-water that meets MY needs AND can go nutzo a the themepark Westworld style.

Speaking as someone who frequently mixes coffee, tea, and Mountain Dew into a hellish concoction, I have to say that I like where your mind's at.

waiting4godot: It probably will be cost effective.. one container for every drink -- you just have to advertise that instead of ads for diet, cherry, vanilla.. extra caffine or whatever.

Nail head hit . . . cheaper for THEM, maybe, they might start cutting down on choices immediately to "cut costs" and be cost effectivererer.

Stupid idea except for maybe emergency medicines in a medical kit . . . don't know what country it's from but seems like typical American SUVish waste, not needed but used anyway.

I remember these from my childhood. They were called soda fountains.
