Retrofitted Water Fountain Dispenses Brawndo: It’s Got What Plants Crave

By Jason Fitzpatrick on May 17th, 2012

When the water fountain in their hackerspace broke down, Dave and Craig weren’t content to just fix it–they upgraded it to dispense Brawndo: The Thirst Mutilator.

If you’ve never heard of Brawndo, you’ve never seen the movie Idiocracy–a lesser known but quite entertaining satirical Sci-Fi comedy from written and directed by Mike Judd.

The design of the upgrade is quite clever, a new series of valves and pumps give the user the option of selecting regular water (labeled Toilet Water, in the spirit of the film) or Brawndo. The Brawndo is cleverly created and flavored on the fly by a pump that drips energy drink concentrate into the water line.

Hit up the link below for more information–and watch Idiocracy if you haven’t!
