Virtual Juicing Assistant

Virtual Juicing Assistant | technologies |
Juice, Drink, Live. Get healthy with Budget Direct’s Simply Smarter Juicing interactive
John Dalziel's insight:

Juicing Assistant is an interesting site where visitors can combine different fruits into a blender and it will make a "virtual juice" for them.
At the start, users are given the nutritional value of each fruit (to be fair they are not all fruits), and when the juice has been made, it will give them the nutritional numbers, as well as show them other juice recipes they may like.
