Zero-Energy Bio Robot Refrigerator Cools Your Food
Electrolux Design Lab holds an annual competition allowing designers to submit concepts for creating home appliances or gadgets with a fresh theme each year.
Russian designer Yuriy Dmitriev came up with an idea to replace the traditional refrigerator that’s been in existence since the mid 1700s with the Bio Robot Refrigerator which uses a “biopolymer gel” to keep food cool.
The “Bio Robot” is supposed to cool the biopolymer gel through luminescence, with the non-sticky gel keeping your food at its optimum temperature. The green-colored odorless non-sticky gel would morph around each item placed into the fridge.
The Bio Fridge is four times smaller than a normal-sized fridge. The design features no doors or drawers, and the food items are individually cooled at their optimal temperature thanks to the robot.
