I know this wouldn't be feasable for a long term arrangement, but really now...wouldn't it be nice to have a coke in a clear glass can?

Glass Can http://www.thegreen...glass-toilet-sm.jpg
Sorta. [DrCurry, Dec 14 2005]

an article (2002) about clear cans http://www.foodengi...,6330,96499,00.html
see, I told you, they're coming back ! [neilp, Dec 14 2005]

       Glass really doesn't have the right mechanical properties. How about plastic or perspex?   

       (I'm not entirely clear why plastic coke bottles don't already come can-shaped - there may be more mechanical principles at work.)

       Blue or Red?

       Great minds think alike.

       They don't come can-shaped because creating an opening mechanism would be much more complicated. You could have the can plastic with a metal top, that might work. Keeping a good seal might be a problem though.

       They make so many other types of plastic cans that have a pop-off top. I cant imagine why it would be any different for soda.

       I bet you could keep colas in a Mason jar. Mason jars are not unpleasant to drink out of.

       A glass seal that is thin enough it can be broken without producing a dangerous edge yet strong enough that it can contain the pressure inside the can. All while making the whole system cheap enough to rival aluminum can production.   

       It's a goddamn holy grail.

       Is this not a bit WIBNI?
spekkie, Dec 14 2005
  

       No - read [neilp]'s anno.

       I'm amazed this isn't a widely-known.

       I know this guy who drinks out of a vase.

       Brian Potter?
Minimal, Dec 15 2005
  

       Huh?

       "I know a pissed horse when I see one! Get it a kebab!"

       I'm still not following you guys.
MikeOxbig, Dec 15 2005
  

       I think Brian Potter is a character on a BBC show called "Pheonix Nights", apparantly. The problem with US shows are that the mainstream ones here are basically plastered all over the gd globe as well.

       "Friends" made it all the way over there? Oh God, its spreading. Run for your lives!
