Pepsi Dream Machine Kiosks gives points for recycled bottles

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on April 23rd, 2010

Pepsi and Waste Management are teaming up for the Dream Machine, a computerized recycling bin that gives out points for returned bottles. The internet-connected kiosks will be installed in stadiums, parks, and gas stations and will award recyclers redeemable points for every bottle returned.

That’s pretty cool. It’s not clear what the recycling points will be redeemable for, but it will encourage recycling in a big way and that’s always a good thing.

Rejected Star Wars promotional products

Rejected Star Wars promotional products
No matter what the movie or property, there are always some ideas that just don’t fly. Especially when it comes to the mega-merchandising of Star Wars. Some are neat, while some are better left unspoken of. Back in 1999 when Jar Jar was born, Pepsi and Lucasarts brainstormed and came up with a bunch of Star Wars promotional products. These are the rejects.

How about a Han Solo carbonite fridge? The Death Star cooking meat in the form of a grill? It’s a shame that these never came to be. I mean, how cool is an AT-AT Walker chair caddy? Or a Darth Vader gumball machine that dispenses mini death stars. See them all after the jump.
