Second Glance: SodaStream's latest looks remarkably like an '80s brick cellphone
Am I right or am I right?
From Wired: "Fans of bubbly water swear by SodaStream's do-it-yourself system. The latest version [the Source] has been fully reimagined by design boss Yves Behar.... It boasts a refashioned bottle, and you can dial in your desired level of fizziness via the LED interface."
Below, the 1983 Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, the world's first commercial handheld cellular phone.
It weighed 1.75 pounds, stood 13 inches high, stored 30 numbers, took 10 hours to recharge, and cost $3,995.
That's $9,400 in 2013 dollars.
But I digressed.
The SodaStream Source pictured up top is a mere snip at $129.95.
