Instead of having to fill vending machines with pre-set volumes of particular drinks, Pouchlink would allow the contents of plastic envelopes to be mixed and dispensed on the spot. Since the machines would be hooked up to mains water supplies, water wouldn't have to be trucked around, and the plastic pouches could be made of biodegradeable materials, allowing the entire process to become much more efficient as well as eco-sound. Further refinements could let you program what drink you like into your mobile so you could upload it to the machine on the spot. [GT]
