Ever have a craving for a can of pop and then realize that you forgot to put some in the fridge, so you’re left settling for some lukewarm fizzy drink or a cold, yet diluted iced one? Well, apparently now there’s an invention that can chill a drink in 45 seconds! We’re all familiar with the lovely microwave’s ability to heat up our food to a nice piping hot temperature within a few seconds to minutes, but I’m sure we’re also familiar with sticking something in the fridge to chill and waiting impatiently for hours until it’s ready (like jello… I mean, do you know how long it takes to make multi-layered jello?!). Can you imagine how amazing it would be to make jello in 45 seconds? Ok, so I guess for now the machine is only for drinks, but I’m sure I could find a way to stick jello into it.
The science behind it seems to involve a cooling vortex that spins the drink in water to protect the carbonation, while rapidly bringing down its temperature. Not only is this thing fast, but apparently the process uses more than 80% less energy than standard drink-chillers. I’ll post the article below; it comes with a cool video too:
I always love reading about awesome, new, innovative inventions and fantasizing about how much better my life could be if I owned every single gadget out there. Or I would start dreaming up my own inventions (reverse-dishwasher, anyone? Useful, I know.) Would you buy this ‘reverse-microwave’? Have you ever thought of any fantastic gizmos and gadgets, even seemingly impossible ones?
