Der Nutrimatic Drinks Dispenser ist ein Produkt der Sirius Cybernetics Corporation. Die Fachliteratur gibt dazu folgenden Hinweis:
When the 'Drink' button is pressed it makes an instant but highly detailed examination of the subject's taste buds, a spectroscopic analysis of the subject's metabolism, and then sends tiny experimental signals down the neural pathways to the taste centres of the subject's brain to see what is likely to be well received. However, no-one knows quite why it does this because it then invariably delivers a cupful of liquid that is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea.
