For a while now, companies like SodaStream have enabled users to make fizzy drinks and sparkling booze while staring at photos of Scarlett Johansson in their kitchen.
It'd take something huge to upset that apple cart, right? Like, say, the ability to brew up name-brand sodas like Coke, Sprite, and Dr. Pepper from the comfort of your own home -- something Keurig's new KOLD™ system is all about.
With its Mortal-Kombat-inspired spelling and sleek looks, the Keurig KOLD™ is clearly looking to break away from its exclusively coffee-based roots: its specialized pods use Karbonator™ beads to infuse drink with CO2 as they're brewed, and the KOLD™ chiller utilizes an "aerospace-inspired thermal transfer system" to quickly cool the drinks before they're served. These things are all trademarked, if you didn't notice.
