100-flavor soda machine in works

If you're confused by those soda dispensing machines that have eight or 10 spouts, imagine what it will be like if Coca-Cola goes through with a device it is developing.

The Atlanta-based beverage giant is working on a fountain machine that will dispense soft drinks in up to 100 flavor combinations. The device will not take up any more room than current dispensers because it will be filled with highly-concentrated flavoring cartridges.

Early prototypes underwent testing earlier this summer with Coke planning a limited release sometimes next year, according to Engadget.com.

Can you imagine the dilemma in trying to make a choice?!

If it could dispense wine & booze I could save a lot on labor ;-)
