An idea whose lime -- and strawberry and kiwi -- has come

SUDBURY

The space-aged Jetson family could conjure up a nice juicy steak with the push of a button.

Now, a Sudbury-based company is hoping to create the soda bottle of the future. Ipifini has created a new, programmable soft drink bottle that could provide consumers with multiple beverage choices in one container.

What's next? The company is also looking to improve choices for shampoos,sauces, paints and perfumes. The products would take up less shelf space and reduce manufacturing costs, according to the Discovery Channel website.

Check out our story about the bottle in Sunday's Globe West.
