Chips & Soda. Latest from SodaStream.

Techstination feature for Friday, July 15, 2011

Chips and soda just go together.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    SodaStream, the company that has created popular make your own soft drink machines, is out with a Fizz model that adds some new technology.    Marketing manager Kristin Harp…

“The great thing about this new machine is it has a Fizz Chip Indicator.  So it shows you how much gas is left in your carbonator so you don’t run out, surprise, one day at a party and you’re out of gas.  And it also shows you how fizzy you’re making your drink.   So you can tell if it’s lightly carbonated, medium or highly carbonated.”

SodaStream sells a wide variety of flavorings, but one of the great uses for the machine also is to create your own natural sodas from juices and such and ditch the sweeteners.  You can even use fresh ginger for a fresh take on ginger ale.   You can find the SodaStream Fizz for about a hundred fifty dollars.  There’s more info at   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
