    I was reading an article where the future of refrigeration is that they use a biopolymer gel that doesn't smell and isn't sticky. Here's the link
    Link deleted by Mod since it wasn't to the article.
    I don't think it's a good idea for refrigeration but I wonder what biopolymer gel really is and if it has any other applications?

    Dmitriev doesn’t really explain how it’s going to work...

    Ergo, it's probably not going to happen.
    NB: it would be better if you replied to responses in your other threads, otherwise it looks like you're here merely to spam.

    Indeed. I laughed at this passage: " Viability aside, the fridge is definitely a huge step forward in terms of rethinking the design of one of our most-used appliances. Probably the best thing about this concept machine is that it uses zero energy for cooling — it just needs energy for it’s little control pad."

    If it uses no energy then it is not a fridge - Carnot cycle and all that. So this thing manages to be a "huge step forward", in spite of NOT WORKING!! Just goes to show there's one born every minute.
