New Coke fountain can dispense 100 different drinks

New Coke fountain can dispense 100 different drinks | ajc.com

The result is a fountain dispenser that’s distinctly Coca-Cola. It’s been designed in three bold colors — red for Coke, silver for Diet Coke and black for Coke Zero. The company’s dynamic ribbon runs down the front.

The machine greets consumers with a touch-screen that displays a host of brands, including Coke, Vault, Powerade, Fanta, Dasani, Minute Maid and Mr. Pibb. When consumers pick a brand, the screen moves to a set of flavoring options. Want a raspberry Coke, vanilla Coke Zero or peach Fanta? This machine has it.

Ice and beverage are dispensed from the same place, a “center-of-the-plate” design, Farrell said. Consumers insert their cup in an opening in the middle, nudge a lever to drop the ice and then push a silver “pour” button to dispense the beverage.

Farrell would not open the machine to show its inner workings, but he said Coke engineers were able to put more choices in the same space as a current eight-valve fountain by using highly concentrated cartridges for ingredients.
That lame-o six to seven you get at a fast food restaurant is just no good anymore.
