Blindfold Challenge - Submit your video and receive a free Soylent t-shirt!


#1

Greetings Soylent Community!

Today, we have a challenge for you. We feel that one of the best things about Soylent is that it’s easy to prepare. So easy to prepare, in fact, that one could successfully do it blindfolded. Our CMO, David, took a stab at it and you’ll have to watch the video below to see how he fared.

Now we want to see what you’ve got. You have to wear a blindfold, but that’s basically where the rules end. If you think preparing Soylent is too easy even with a blindfold on, we want to see how far you can take it. Get creative! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Official Rules

  • Follow 1.4 (page 5) preparation instructions
  • Secure blindfold before starting
  • Prepare Soylent as precisely as possible
  • All submissions must be in video form
  • Videos must be submitted by 11:59 pm PST on May 17, 2015
  • PM @Conor your shirt size & mailing address

Judging

  • Community will vote on all submissions
  • We are hoping to see originality, creativity, and enthusiasm
  • We reserve the right to disqualify any submissions

Rewards

  • All participants get a Soylent t-shirt
  • Top three submissions (as voted on by the community) get a special
    mystery prize!

Good luck and have fun!

The elevator music really ties it all together.

I’ve never before thought in terms of how and what a blind person eats but this video makes me realize that although Soylent isn’t aimed at blind people, it could be very useful to some of them. With some practice even cleaning the pitcher in prep for the next use wouldn’t be too hard.

Mystery prize!! Is it Soylent? :slight_smile:
I have this idea for how I would do it, but my Soylent I bought from someone else isn’t here yet… I was thinking Rube Goldberg machine that would make the Soylent… :3

Interesting proposal. My Mrs would (something not very nice) me if I did this and made a mess.

I’ve only made 1 batch with the soylent pitcher, I found it too difficult to clean up. Now I do not follow the instructions in the release notes, (though I do shake the hydro flask at the end).
Also I split my powder and make 1L at a time, measured by weight. I could not really do that blindfolded.

It would be interesting to see the different processes everyone uses (blindfolded still of course)


#7

I don’t have my manual handy…

Would preparing single servings count? That is the method both my wife and I use. We’ve not used our pitcher a single time since we got it, to be perfectly honest…


#8

Be creative with how you prep. We would like to see the pitcher being used, that being said if you never do its okay, but we want to see you challenged!

Well, here goes – https://youtu.be/lY6VdnNUn9U

Glad I didn’t make a mess!

@lewiscb loved the “drinking from the carton”.


#13

I don’t have a camera but I’ll buy a shirt anyway. @Conor, care to inquire with the team for me? :slight_smile:

#15

Yes! just be extra creative, we’d love to see you both do it!


#16

I became blind at birth and prepare Soylent all the time! I’ll see what I can do about making a video, not really my forte. I don’t need to wear a blindfold.

I prepare it by the meal using three 1/4 Cup scoops of Soylent 1.4, three ice cubes, about 10oz water and a teaspoon of green tea matcha powder. Here is my video: https://goo.gl/XDJAoy

The 1/4 cup scoop fits in the bag and cup easier.

Where there is a will there is a way, looking forward to the submission.
