New Soda Bottle Tech Lets You Mix Your Own Flavors

by Paul Strauss

Ipifini Choice-Enabled Soda BottleIn the future, you’ll be able to customize more and more products to your own liking, and why should beverages be any different?

This new technology from Ipifini, called “Choice-Enabled Packaging,” provides bottles of soda with multiple flavor “buttons,” which can be pressed to create your own customized soft drink flavors.

A programmable bottle with four flavors and a caffeine button can produce up to 32 unique concoctions. A six-button prototype has been produced which can create 64 combinations. Bring on those cherry lime vanilla sodas!

    you spelled “you’re” wrong. imbecile.

  4. Kirtar says:

    Why do people insist on correcting others’ spelling and grammar? You didn’t capitalize at all, I guess you’re an idiot too. I hate grammar nazis.

    Anyways! Awesome idea. I wish you could put only certain amounts of flavor in rather than the entire button’s worth, though.

    The idea was introduced in Jeff Noon’s short story “Solace”. Read it and be scared.

  11. umm yeah says:

    The guy who said “your old news” could have meant one of two things.

    I thought he meant that it was the OTHER person’s old news, and therefore said YOUR, because it was only old news for him.

    So next time you feel like being a dumbass and trying to correct someone’s grammar who probably doesn’t give a shit… don’t.

    Oh Man, this is such a great idea. I hope they add new flavors as the product grows.

  18. heebadeeba says:

    wtf vader?we dont care bout grammar or spelling noobie!ur a real noob man!btw,….how can i get that bottle.it looks like its pretty awesome

  19. Timbo says:

    Bit gimmicky. Basically any flavourings not used get wasted? How is this different from making several different flavours in different bottles? I guess there are flavour combinations you wouldn’t usually get on the plus side. On the minus side every bottle of Fizz you make has to have all the flavours which would possibly drive the price up. The potential for caffeine abuse is another issue (save up several bottles. Push the caffeine tab after each drink has been drunk and empty all that caffeine from several bottles into one bottle. Increases the risk of caffeine overdose.

    Also I could see bottled water sales going up if these get sold. You could break the Cherry, vanilla, Cola & caffiene tabs, drink the drink then break the lemon & lime tabs to flavour your other bottle of fizzy water. (for example)

    As you may be able to tell I’m a bit undecided as to whether this would take off in the drinks market. Would be brilliant for use with 2-part adhesives and resins though. Just click the container and shake. Would work really well. Especially with resins. You could have the main resin in the bottle – the catalyst & mixer in two of the tabs and 4 dyes (in the 6 tab version).
