Ever have 1 of those moments where you fully comprehend the power of technologies as it affects your every day life and believe to your self, “This is the future!”? Nicely, if so, you’re about to have yet another one particular, and if not, you’re about to have your 1st. It seems Electrolux has been carrying out its part to hold it green — both literally and figuratively — by experimenting with power-efficient alternatives for kitchen appliances, including a gel refrigerator that doesn’t require standard energy to preserve its meals things cool. Instead, this “bio robot” fridge uses a gel with dense enough surface tension to develop a pod of sorts for each and every food item, maintaining it separate from the next without transferring smells or letting them touch. When things are removed, the gel doesn’t follow nor, ostensibly, leave a residue, in spite of its look. Able to stand vertically or horizontally, the fridge would be only one-4th the size of its more standard contemporaries, and its biopolymer gel would also include a luminescence function for added visual influence. When or if this fridge will ever actually turn into a reality is anyone’s guess, but if we can get previous the ‘green slime’ aspect, we have to admit it’s a pretty cool thought in terms of energy efficiency. Now: who’s hungry?
