This Borg Cube Fridge Is All The Refrigeration A Trekkie Needs

star_trek_borg_cube_fridge_1

“The first officially publicized Federation contact with a Borg cube took place in 2365, when the USS Enterprise-D encountered a single cube in System J-25.” This much we know thanks to Google and the first wiki we came across, but we’ll confess to not being familiar with Borg cubes. Seeing as it does look rather cool though, we decided to tell the Trekkies in our audience that they can get a tiny one that doubles as not only a fridge, but also a food warmer. Measuring only 11.5″ on each side, this cube won’t hold a ton of food, and we don’t even really know how it keeps food warm… but we suppose a cramped dorm room might be appropriate for something like this. It does glow green behind the Borg coating, as well as inside. The door does lock to prevent spillage, while the rubber feet prevent it from sliding around. It’s… as good as things are going to get for a mini Borg cube fridge we suppose, and we’re glad Thinkgeek is only asking $150 for it.

Yo Dawg, We Heard You Like Fridge Doors So We Put A Fridge Door In Your Fridge Door

One of LG’s high-end fridges has a feature called Door-In-Door which lets you quickly access your favourite items without actually, you know, opening the door. The idea is that every time you open the whole door you let out some of the cold air and that… screws things up a bit. We’re not convinced that it makes that big of a difference, to be honest, but we don’t have lab coats and clipboards so we could be wrong.

The fridge itself is pretty huge, storing 31 sq. ft. of foodstuffs, but the main thing we wanted to talk about was the door-in-door thing. It’s nifty.

Oh, and you have to spend $3,500 on the fridge to get it.
