The slightly pre-crushed soft drinks range are the intended
encourage dexterity and invention in those who tendency is
to crumple up their drinks can when it is empty and toss it
The pre-crushed cans would come carefully engineered to
slightly pre-disorted, according to an
algorithm that ensures
that a few judicious twists and manipulations will pop them
back into perfect form. There would be a limited range,
graded for degrees of difficulty, with the folds and
indentations labelled and mapped with numbers and dotted
lines to facilitate publishing a solution.

||So, like a Mellow Yellow Rubik's cube?
||Just blow very hard into the opening.
||dr curry - that might work to some extent if they were
tubular cans... but are they ?
||But how will these precrushed cans handle the internal pressure required for carbonated soft drinks or beer?
||same way as they do now if you mangle them a little
before opening... but since they are designed to take the
internal pressure as part of their new slightly pre-crushed
form, it would not be a problem.
||[zenzag] You must work out.
||I know that I cannot make any change in the general topology of an unopened can of Coca Cola with my bare hands. I might be able to deform the opening tab, or maybe the lid rim if I had pliers, but not otherwise. The main body is quite rigid, I can slightly depress the sides, but it pops right out. I think this is due to the pressure contained within. It is like an aluminum balloon.
