I tried this out at the Future Tech Show in London recently. The team suggested that the machine would use a combination of light, smell and taste to make plain water taste like any drink you want. The truth is, it doesn't.

The machines on display were preloaded with three drinks: chocolate, peach and chocolate (yes I think that constitutes two drinks too). It shines an led to make a small portion of the water the desired colour. It produces a smell which is really rather good, then you press your tongue on a metal plate which stimulates it to create a taste - except it doesn't. It just taste of electricity and the water tastes of......water.

I don't think this site will post something from a dropbox - maybe try and find it somewhere else on line? Or if it's yours, upload it to gyazo or photo bucket or something similar.

Welcome to the forums :-)

I find Reddit's image-hosting site Imgur to be the easiest for quick upload of pictures, maybe try that one - it's free and you don't need to register to use it :)

Off topic a bit but I thought I'd share this with you anyway: at the same show was a virtual reality slide. A slide that adults can go on without being too embarrassed! You put on the VR googles and the seat moves around. This was much better than the water which tasted of water!
