Electrolux refrigerator concept suspends food in odourless gel

Bio Robot Refrigerator by Yuriy Dmitriev for Electrolux's 2010 Design Lab:

Four times smaller than a conventional refrigerator, the Bio Robot cools biopolymer gel through luminescence. Rather than shelves, the non sticky, odourless gel morphs around products to create a separate pod that suspends items for easy access. Without doors, draws and a motor 90% of the appliance is solely given over to its intended purpose. At the same time, all food, drink and cooled products are readily available, odours are contained, and items are kept individually at their optimal temperature by bio robots. The fridge is adaptable – it can be hung vertically, horizontally, and even on the ceiling. Different sizes and dimensions allow it to perfectly fit the accordant dwelling.

  1. Alright, it's very cool looking, no doubt there at all, I do like the DESIGN. Yet, lol...it just kills me when some designer is showcased for designing...something that cannot exist! Or, in this case, cannot exist with ANY existing technology, ala this magic gel that somehow works better than a insulated fridge even though the gel is in direct contact with the room temperature air. It's as if I could win a contest for designing a car that runs off of my love for Portal. Well, of course it's FAR better than today's hybrid cars...it's obsession mixed with Portal. Trust me, that drives itself.
