Project Brief

Clone Spirits is an IOT appliance for flavoring alcohol and developing customized drinks. An assortment of flavor cartridges are inserted into the machine for the ability to turn vodka into flavorful concoctions through the device’s interface or mobile app. The removable drip tray allows for three different size glasses to accommodate from a large tumbler to a standard shot glass.

Form & Features

This concept was brought to life through numerous design iterations. Focusing on a minimal footprint, the sleek aesthetic is eye catching to consumers and a product they will want to display on their counter. Consumers can either use the angled touchscreen interface which is ergonomic for the user standing in front or the mobile app to customize drinks in real time. Lifting the front panel allows for easy replacement of cartridges as the reservoir adds a unique aesthetic that slides from the side to refill.

Prototype

Designed the plastic for injection molding and optimized the internal configurations of all components to follow appropriate standrads. The team collaborated to source components for both the main  device and applicators. Prototypes for the Main TCMS & Applicators were assembled with plastic prototypes which were machined and painted to portray final aesthetic.
