Moobella scoops top spot at Demo

Chris Shipley is opening Demo with MooBella, a vending machine that dispenses custom ice cream mix-ins. "Every consumer can become a Ben, or a Jerry," the CEO says. And this is a tech conference, so be advised: The machine is Linux-based and has distributed management. But how good is the ice cream? We'll report on that and let you know.

Commercial units should hit the Boston test market this year.
