Pepsi asked us if we could develop a prototype for a vending machine that could provide cooling and power without relying on the traditional power grid and without using emerging technologies.
Our concept was instant. The concept sketch took us :30 seconds to develop. The client was intrigued. We spent the next 60 days engineering a fully functional bench prototype and mathematical models to prove the viability of the concept. Today it sits in their innovation lab and the value of the IP has application far beyond their industry.
