I Want To Buy Keurig's New Soda-Dispensing Machine (Unfortunately)

Keurig, the company that stole all your money with its annoyingly convenient coffee machines, has just announced a machine that might do the same thing for soda.

Twitter's Hashflags Are An Abomination, And They Must Be Stopped

Did you tweet a photo of the supermoon last night? Perhaps you used the #supermoon hashtag, only to discover that a round red welt had affixed itself to your tweet, as ugly and unwanted as a social media zit. These are called hashflags.

Yes, You Can Make A Rocket Out Of Propane And Coke

One does not simply play with explosive things, if one values the structural integrity of his or her appendages. On the other hand, we seem to have no problem watching someone else mix potentially combustible liquids together — in this case, Coke and propane — so we can see the results.

What Happens When You Drop A Can Of Coke Into Liquid Nitrogen

Video: It’s going to freeze obviously. But there’s this awesome possibility that the soda can will split in half and start spewing an explosion of almost frozen Coca Cola into the surrounding liquid nitrogen. Once it does that, the exploded coke looks like it has been stopped in time, the soda has frozen into art mid-explosion.

Pouring Coca Cola Into Molten Lead Creates Wild Alien Art

Video: Coca Cola is delicious. It’s a cause of diabetes and a bringer of obesity but it is delicious. Turns out it’s also probably used by aliens to make art of their home planets. Check out what happens when you melt lead and then add that dark sugar water into the mix, it smokes and pops and goes wild but what’s left is a metallic landscape that looks incredible.

Soda Actually Makes For An Excellent Cleaning Agent

Need to scrape gum off a footpath or get bird crap off your car or even clean your toilet? Just pour soda on it or around it or in it and let the delicious bubbly sugar liquid diabetes do its thing. Soda can be a magic cleaning material, which is awesome to know in a pinch but also completely disgusting since we willingly put it in our body.

A Mutant Cocaine-Eating Enzyme Could Cure Addiction And Overdoses

Ready for some weird science? Certain bacteria found in the dirt near coca plants are powered by an enzyme that eats cocaine. Unfortunately, the enzyme breaks down quickly at body temperature, meaning it can’t be used to treat human overdoses or addiction. Now, though, researchers have designed a version that can survive body temps — and more than doubles its cocaine appetite.

Does A $20 Glass Built Just For Coke Actually Improve The Taste?

Any discerning oenophile will tell you that the shape of a wine glass can make a huge difference in your imbibing experience. On the other hand, that could just be a bunch of bullshit. Either way, Riedel decided to do for Coke what it’s spent decades doing for pinot: design a glass scientifically optimised for taste. We decided to test it out for ourselves.

Coca-Cola Wants You To Start Riding Your Bike

Coca-Cola has an interesting new app and social initiative. It’s called The Happiness Cycle, and it’s aimed at teenagers (although anyone can join in). Coke wants them to start riding bikes; the aim is to get Australian kids to become more active, and the soft drink giant is giving away hundreds of bicycles to promote the cause.

Your Next Soft Drink Could Come With Internet Access

Looks like the way we drink soda is about to get a whole lot smarter — or, at the very least, more connected. OpenStack Engineering Manager Alavaro Lopez Ortega stumbled across the fact that The Coca Cola Company recently registered no less than 16 million MAC (media access control) addresses. The question is: What exactly is Coke planning on doing with that much networked hardware?
