Are you batin’? Because you will be after you see this water fountain. Dave Dalton and Craig Berscheidt of Kansas City’s Hammerspace Workshop decided to create a special Idiocracy-themed drinking fountain for their front hall. Using their old, dysfunctional drinking fountain and a lot more mechanical know-how than I can ever hope to achieve, they rigged up a switch so that users can choose between “Brawndo” (water flavored with drops of MiO Energy) or “toilet water” (fresh water). So far, it’s not just what plants crave, but what humans crave as well: anyone unfamiliar with the movie is unlikely to select plain water.
I would absolutely try a Brawndo drinking fountain. After all, Brawndo has what plants crave! It’s got electrolytes! If anyone can get the Costco greeters to tell me they love me, I’ll have the best life ever.[Hammerspace Workshop, via io9]
