Sometimes you see tech that makes you feel happy. The Electolux Gel is one such piece of tech. If you can get beyond the green slime factor that is...

Electrolux Gel Refrigerator

Electrolux has been doing its part to keep it green — both literally and figuratively — by experimenting with energy-efficient alternatives for kitchen appliances, including a gel refrigerator that doesn’t require traditional energy to keep its food items cool.  Instead, this “bio robot” fridge uses a gel with dense enough surface tension to create a pod of sorts for each food item, keeping it separate from the next without transferring smells or letting them touch.

When items are removed, the gel doesn’t follow nor, ostensibly, leave a residue, despite its appearance. Able to stand vertically or horizontally, the fridge would be only one-fourth the size of its more traditional contemporaries, and its biopolymer gel would also include a luminescence feature for added visual impact. When or if this fridge will ever truly become a reality is anyone’s guess.
