i can't wait until someone figures out how to hack the OS and replaces flavors with things like bile

also, crazy eyes

splatterbabble - 2010-06-01

Those really are some crazy eyes!

WHO WANTS DESSERT - 2010-06-01

Fuck that, I'm waiting for hacked alcohol cartridges.

MrBuddy - 2010-06-01

He was probably really nervous. I tried to make a video of myself once and it came across just about as stiff as video did.

memedumpster - 2010-06-01

Mr. Buddy, porno doesn't count, you're supposed to come across as stiff, you did fine.

Pillager - 2010-06-01

Flavor cartridges.

SolRo - 2010-06-01

you've never seen how a regular soda machine works, have you?

they're basicly giant flavor cartridges hooked up to a water tap with some carbonation equipment inbetween

Urburos - 2010-06-02

They're more like wine coolers with yards of hose attached to them to run all the way to the back of the store.

TheOtherCapnS - 2010-06-01

He never blinks. I bet he didn't even blink once during the entire voice over.

Five for demonstrating a tooth-grindingly slow touch screen OS that doesn't even register every touch (and they left that in the promotional video!?) What is this 1995?

nidan - 2010-06-01

He got all the blinking out of the way right at the beginning.

Camonk - 2010-06-01

I guess Mack's dad finally got a job. Good for him.

pastorofmuppets - 2010-06-01

Also underwhelmed by the touch thing... mostly since cheap homebrew touch tables are all the rage: http://tinyurl.com/3yak6sk
(nerd warning)

But I figure a company that gets Coke as a contract is going to be paying their salesmen a lot more than their engineers...

glasseye - 2010-06-02

It's almost certainly Windows CE; that's Bsquare's thing.

chumbucket - 2010-06-02

appears to use the same wonky interface programmed with the code that self-checkouts use lately, possibly adding yet another 4 months of waiting time in our lifetimes

memedumpster - 2010-06-01

I can't wait until restaurants get these things so the sluggish as all hell touch screen can reduce the speed and accuracy of getting your drink by 700%.

Syd Midnight - 2010-06-01

Restaurants have had this for 100 years, it's called a soda fountain. If you want your Coke to have some orange in it or extra syrup or something, ask your waitress nicely.

pastorofmuppets - 2010-06-01

If a vending machine gave me drugs I would probably suspect some sort of a setup. Plus, Ritalin is like the RC Cola of uppers. "They still make you? Alright, whatever."

RockBolt - 2010-06-02

The majority of the slowness I saw in these in market testing in Atlanta was the fact that everyone stands in front of it, mixes a drink, takes a sip then dumps it out and tries another one (hell I did the same thing). In fact I think I heard that they had to increase the draining capacity for that very reason

Architeuthis Tux - 2010-06-02

Out here in SoCal, I never saw anyone doing that. Instead it was people standing in front of the machine, pressing a button to see what options it had, waiting 7 seconds for the screen to come up then navigating back out.

On the one hand I kinda liked being able to get bizarro flavors of my shitty sugarwater. On the other hand, if I'm going to have to deal with a 7 second delay between every button press I'd really rather be communicating with a device on the moon, and I think sody pop from the moon would be a little too cold and irradiated to drink.

Mike Tyson?! - 2010-06-01

I think it's a neat idea, not sure on the time it takes just to get a stupid diet Coke.

Cyberblah - 2010-06-01

A restaurant near where I used to live is testing one of these. It works pretty well, but there really needs to be two of them to make up for the delay while picking a flavor.

Goethe and ernie - 2010-06-01

AND field service technicians?! Well, I'm sold.

BorrowedSolution - 2010-06-01

Well this is...a video...about...things.

Chizmurder - 2010-06-01

Coker cola.

kennydra - 2010-06-01

This is so boring. One star for each of his crazy eyes.

GravidWithHate - 2010-06-01

Someone is going to hack the security on these things and edit the recipes so that no matter what is requested they only dispense apple glazed pork flavored Mr Pibb.

cognitivedissonance - 2010-06-01

Circle soda jerk.


Xero - 2010-06-01

So I can get my flavored sugar water through a fancier machine. Alright.

spikestoyiu - 2010-06-02

Seriously, shut up.

ShiftlessRastus - 2010-06-01

Imagine how sticky that touchscreen is going to get.

Scrotum H. Vainglorious - 2010-06-01

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

pastorofmuppets - 2010-06-01

Not enough mention of XML. And what about scalability? I heard scalability is important.

Busby Berkeley - 2010-06-02

Does no one remember when there were 100% mechanical soda machines like this? That also served coffee, hot chocolate and chicken broth?

Syd Midnight - 2010-06-02

Yeah but it wouldn't let you mix them together.

fluffy - 2010-06-02

I like how they use RFID for inventory control, because there weren't already enough buzzwords in this.

Urburos - 2010-06-02

You had me at Grape VAULT.

Timothy A. Bear - 2010-06-02

Thanks, but I like having the ability to mix a drink that shouldn't be.

Syd Midnight - 2010-06-02

Fine, stars for reminding me of mixing together everything in the soda fountain to make a Mr Pibb That Should Not Be

Anti-Pope - 2010-06-02

I want a fucking raspberry coke.

Rape Van Winkle - 2010-06-02

How do I mix flavors in one drink?

Fuck you, magic space fountain.

chumbucket - 2010-06-02

yes badly needs a "Suicide" button, but I'm betting that didn't fare well with the focus groups.

Ponasty - 2010-06-02

I got "micro-dosed" at a Phish show once. it was nice.

Hooker - 2010-06-02

How many different "flavours" of water do you guys actually have?

Hooker - 2010-06-02

And how many water cartridges does it take to supply you with all the choices there are?

Xero - 2010-06-03

Fancy fountain machines. How do they work?

Tom Collins - 2010-12-16

"Computer virus targets Iranian Coke machines and replicates flavours of bacon, justice."

themilkshark - 2011-10-20

BUT NO PEPSI??????????

Blue - 2012-07-07

Children like it because they can fuck with it and make everybody else wait while they play with the drink machine.
