SodaStream, a status symbol amongst children of the seventies and eighties, is making a comeback. Environmentally-friendly, economical, and fun(ish), these home carbonation contraptions have had a complete overhaul.

The new designs are sleek and modern, with a special edition version from designer Karim Rashid, and the brand is advertising on TV for the first time in twenty years. The timing’s perfect for the revival-trend that’s sweeping our streets these days — though the new models lack a bit of that old-school charm.
