The Hot Fridge

By David Ponce

Informational parenthetical: quite simply put, refrigerators work by extracting heat from the air inside them and putting it outside. That’s why the back of your fridge is hot. Until now, that heat’s been wasted. Well, with the Hot Fridge, a creation of Hae-jin Kim, you could conceivably give your fridge dual use and keep things hot, as well as cold. It would do this by placing the “back of the fridge”, on top, where a special hot food storage compartment would be placed.

A simple yet very ingenious little change.

    Why are there purses on hooks inside the “fridge”?

    Maybe since it heats up too, they thought you could use it to dry things…
