This is the central repository for information regarding the effort to restore and ultimately hack the vintage soda machine.

The restoration effort is currently being headed up by David Stokes. The machine currently resides in Space 7, but will (hopefully) be moved to a public location once it has basic functionality.

Note: Please check with me before entering my space and/or working on the machine! Stokes 15:20, 10 April 2012 (EDT)
