A smoothie machine known as the FruziFridge is being deterministically designed to dispense frozen fruit smoothies. The design is scalable so it can be made available in homes as a built-in module of a refrigerator or in public as a vending machine. The design is compared to previously existing smoothie machine technology and succeeds in fulfilling functional requirements that cater more to the health conscious consumer. The FruziFridge is still a work-in-progress so this text only shows the strategy and concept phase of design and the early stages of the detailed engineering and development phase of design, including verification of the most critical module's concept.
