Rapid prototyping

Mass customization meets social media: uFlavor's flavor printer mixes 42 different ingredients at 300 gradations to create bespoke soft drinks on demand.

As well as designing your own drink, you'll be able to share it. And if by some magical trick your drink becomes popular and people start talking about it and demanding it from uFlavor vending machines, then you'll have a hit on your hands--aided by suggestions from uFlavor's system, which learns users' profiles and their preferences, and then suggests new drinks you may like.

Plus you get a percentage every time someone buys your drink. It's a Brave New World.
