Popping into the fridge for a quick snack isn't that difficult a chore, so why would anyone need an icebox with auto-opening doors? Well imagine yourself needing one last ingredient while your hands are covered in whatever you're baking, and you'll realize the genius of Toshiba's Vegeta line of refrigerators.
Samsung has presented a new awesome fridge, with a Ultra HD 4K LCD screen, a built-in Evernote app, and a baby monitor. All of those features are stupid, but only one of them isn't real.
Let's face it, the things you put in your mouth are disgusting enough even without the constant fear of expired eggs or questionable meat. So let's all refrigerate thusly: with conveyor belts that give the stale stuff the boot.
How in hell did this cat learn that he had Spiderman abilities? Seriously, this video really WTF'ed my Friday. I didn't particularly like cats, but I'm definitely starting to succumb to their many charms and abilities. [Thanks Tom!]
Cooking with the iPad is great if you don't mind a greasy screen or you enjoy washing your hands every time you need to navigate on device's touchscreen. Of course, you always have the option to wrap the thing in plastic wrap.
A fisherman that had been swept out of his boat off the coast of Japan's Niigata prefecture managed to stay alive for 24 hours, while he clung to his plastic esky that acted as a life-aid.
Photographer Mark Menjivar travelled across the US for three years and talked to people from every walk of life about food. He also took pictures of their refrigerators. Dirty or clean, empty or full.
It's a clichéd message, sure, but you've got to give Germany artist Ralf Schmerberg props for collecting 322 fridges to create this igloo. An attached electrical meter displays the energy waste to passersby, who can even pop inside.
I'm looking at my not-that-big apartment and I see a separate fridge, sink and stove in my kitchen. Sure, it's convenient but if I could have this 1952 Cook and Wash Refrigerator Unit instead, I'd be living in a mansion.
Sure, you could try affixing some magnets to the back of your iPad, and get the same iPad-as-fridge-magnet effect for far less, but then what'd happen if the iPad dropped and shattered? You wouldn't have anyone to sue but yourself.
Gorenje, the company that brought us the iPod-docking fridge, has created the next fridge of our dreams—carbon fiber, baby. The induction hob shown below is also the stove of our (concentric) dreams:
$13. Whole package. Must resist.
Wired's iPhone-themed DIY kegerator is the stuff of legend: An unwanted fridge became a moving, gadget-filled beer dispenser of the highest caliber. This video shows that it's also a pretty easy (if expensive) undertaking.
AT&T may be worried about the Palm Pre, but they should be much more worried about refrigerators that smell so bad they force the evacuation of over 300 office employees.
A research team at Stanford has developed a thermos-sized refrigeration device that uses no electricity. Instead, it contains some sort of coolant that becomes cold when exposed to heat.
You've been hearing all about how Joss Whedon's Dollhouse has gone through multiple revamps before hitting the airwaves, but apparently JJ Abrams' Fringe went through a similar (but more secret) series of reconceptions. We've managed to get our hands on early versions of the show's iconic teasers and posters. When…
If you've ever lived with a roommate who seems to enjoy experimenting with mold in your communal fridge, you can probably appreciate this invention from Austrian design student Stefan Buchberger. The Flatshare Fridge, one of nine finalists in the Electrolux Design Lab 2008 competition, consists of up to four…
I don't know if these fridges are the norm in the US, but it seems to me like Miele's latest giganormous fridge from their Master Cool line—shown here at IFA 2008—has to be the biggest fridge ever available to megalomaniac consumers and potential serial killers.
