    It`s just a concept. I personally think it looks stupid. It also looks hard to hold -_-.

    oh for...I thought this had died with that dire facebook group. This will never be the new coke bottle. It`s just a concept that probably wouldn`t work (the pressure inside the bottle would go to the straight edges of a square bottle causing it to bulge out or break along the seams- don`t you think they`d have done it already if it would have worked?).

    It`s not their bottle shape so it won`t see the light of day. They chose that design so you would know which soda it was even in complete darkness.

    Anything is valid when its just a concept. I think it would be awkward to hold in your hand tough, there is a reason all bottles are round shaped.

    I can see it for Pepsi, but not Coke.

    It`s like changing to "New Coke". Doesn`t matter how much you spend on marketing research and/or development, people like familiarity.

    If we cared that much about space saving, enviromentally safe packaging, everything would be in cardboard squares.

    Nice bottle, but I don`t think they should replace the coke bottle with this. The classic shape of the coke bottle is embedded in American culture, changing it would be like turning the Statue of Liberty into a man.

    I reckon they should try it with Fanta or Sprite first, or some other drink which doesn`t have such a famous bottle shape. I love the idea of it, but replacing the classic coke bottle... no.

    "Anything is valid when its just a concept. I think it would be awkward to hold in your hand tough, there is a reason all bottles are round shaped."

    And you obviously did not drink milk from a carton in school at lunch time or how about a carton of coffee creamer which is also square. Even orange juice can come in a square carton. So no it would not be awkward and that is not the reason bottles are round.

    That would be so annoying if only coke bottles were square. As someone mentioned, it wont fit the cup holders. Unless we got all square bottles and cups, and replaced every holder in all the cinemars etc.

    "That would be so annoying if only coke bottles were square. As someone mentioned, it wont fit the cup holders. Unless we got all square bottles and cups, and replaced every holder in all the cinemars etc."

    It looks like the bottle would still fit, the square may be smaller than cupholders, plus this is America, do you think marketing would just let them do something like abandon CUPHOLDERS in AMERICA of all places? XD

    Oh..no..no..no! This will not work for either Coke or Pepsi. Other people have said it here...people won`t buy it if it doesn`t have that distinguishable bottle shape. It may catch on with other brands of soft drinks...but history has proved it...leave the classic softdrinks as they are!

    Now, as a Canadian who very much likes her soda pop bottles untampered with i will now salut the pop industry by leaving out a bowl of orangs soda pop for that little black bear that has been terrorizing our neighborhood for the last few days.

    It looks a little silly, but I believe it`s for the best if this design can help Coke reduce costs and be more green. I don`t think it`ll be that hard to hold anyway; it`d be just like a milk carton.

    I know that this most likley wouldn`t work because of the pressure, but, why would anyone be opposed to it because of changing the bottle shape? Wouldn`t it being more environmentally friendly trump the shape of the bottle? After all, it`s still the exact same stuff inside of it. Remember, it`s what`s on the inside that counts.

    Yeah, the design is cool, but there`s a lot of issues with it that this guy didn`t consider, mainly the fact that a square design like this would NEVER stand up to the pressure of carbonation. The iconic Coke bottle isn`t just Americana, it`s science, and built to stand up to the stresses of a carbonated beverage. If he wanted this design to work, he would need to use a ton more plastic to reinforce the walls of the bottle, which would completely destroy his idea of "going green" with it.

    Sorry if this offends any of you but - There are some stupid people here. The article clearly states that the square design is smaller than the diameter of the bottles now, it will fit in your cup holder just fine.

    And this is just a concept design from a student with a coke label on it.

    Now think of why all of the following look a like and you will realize why this will NEVER happen - Tanker trucks, propane tanks, helium tanks, soda cans, soda bottles, scuba tanks, aerosol cans etc. All of these have 2 things in common. It`s simple physics...

    Except that orange juice stays in fridge untill it gets poured into a glass and back into fridge. Milk at lunch gets given drunk in one go. Bottled drinks get carried around roundness helps easier to hold.

    Then i concur with the fact things are round because of the pressure inside. If it was that smaller greener (probably cheaper) and improving image. Unless there is a good reason i.e carbonation pressure....

    Ain`t gonna happen. Rebranding costs a fortune.

    One would have to assume such a simplistic design has not been thought of before. These companies have professionals designing relevant shapes and sizes all the time. Containers are made for less plastic usage to decrease production costs and increase profit. The secondary externality is to be "environmentally friendly."

    Second, ergonomics. These containers don`t look comfortable to hold at all. Why would people go back to NES controllers when they have ergonomic Xbox or PS3 controllers that contour to the hand? Also these look like mini jerry cans. Relating a gasoline container to a beverage container is not something the makers desire.

    Third, how would one stack these for transport? The cylinder has been known to have strong support structure. In warehouses these crates can be stacked to great heights. How does a "collapsible" bottle hold the weight?

    This is just a stunt by the maker to try to promote himself for future employment.

    the shape of the coke bottle isn`t a big dratin deal. if it saves space and is more environmentally friendly, then why the hell shouldn`t we use it? if you people are gonna make yourself fatter you might as well do it more eco friendly.

    Final reason why it won`t work. The shape of the container. Why are pressurized materials in cylinders? To contain the pressure structurally! This design doesn`t make sense in the fact that if the inside has the cylinder shape and the outside has added plastic how is it saving plastic from the cylinder shape it has now? Again, there are professionals that develop designs and there are reasons why we have the shapes that exist currently.

    The designer saw a square watermelon in Japan and thought why not do that for bottles.

    I agree. You can actually get sugar sweetened sodas around Passover when the Kosher food is in higher demand. Look for a little "k" in a circle or the word "parve" I think.

    I honestly thought this was going to be one of those things where at first you hate it but eventually learn to accept and like it. This is different, I actually like it from the start. I`ve seen water packaged similarly but in a cylindrical form and it was minimalistic and aesthetically pleasing. Well done Coca-Cola! :)

    I totally agree and Mexican Coca-Cola still uses sugar. Now before you go saying that it`s probably inefficient to go drive to Mexico for Coke, I`m pretty sure Costco sells the stuff...

    Been done for water and I`m sure Fiji has the patent for it- it`s the only water bottle that`s square like that. It can`t be done with carbonated beverages- the reason why the bottles are tapered at the top is from the carbonation and without it, the top would just pop off from pressure. As much as I wish they`d do it (mainly to save shipping materials), they should at least incorporate the crushing idea... Zephyrhills does that already and they`re successful with recycling :)

    I personally like it, but there are a few reasons why these would never be taken into use by coca cola: Firstly, the design of their bottle is iconic, even the plastic one, and they would never stray so far from the image that gives consumers the warm fuzzies. Secondly, as someone else pointed out, a container that shape would not work as well for a carbonated drink. Thirdly, round shapes are much more pleasing to hold in your hand.

    the shape of the coca cola bottle is a trademark. literally. i visited the coca cola factory in atlanta and it seemed like the shape of the bottle is just as important as the taste of the soda. however, i do like this design.

    Reducing waste and shipping is always good. I think it is drating ugly, but that doesn`t matter in comparasion to it being more economical.

    Not that the companies would do this anyway. The bottle it currently comes in is familiar and hence helps to sell it.

    Meh.

    i am guessing what molehouse means is the fact that under stress a carbonated beverage will release some of the gas. and gas particles being more expanded then that of a liquid puts stress onto the bottle. circular being a popular choice because of the ease to manufacture and also the ability to withstand much more stress then the liquid could give out under normal conditions.

    but in defense of the square bottle is that glass coke containers fair just fine without the ability to expand or stretch any effect visible or notable. so with more plastic in a square container that wouldn`t be knocking about in delivery of up against boxes in your carrier bag it should actually be put unless less stress or any thing which would cause it to release the gas inside the bottle. plus it would also be plastic so it would be able to expand unless the pressure of more then the general atmosphere.

I think these will probably only work for the bigger 2 liter bottles, perhaps 1 liter bottles too, but I think the smaller versions would be cute :) I think these would be cute in the mini sizes to pack in lunch boxes.
