# Decision Before Opening

Let me let you in on a little quote from a comedian I know: “OK you stand here. I’ll get the camera, and I’ll take a picture of the inside of the fridge and get it developed. When I come back, I’ll tape it to the frige on the outside so you’ll know what’s in there, and then you can know what you want before you get in. How’s that.” – Bill Cosby (1982.) Little did Cosby know that only about 30 years later there’d be a real solution to this problem.

And here it is!

Using a system that employes clear glass, opaque glass, and a rotating container system inside, you’ll never have to sit with the fridge open for hours again. You can KNOW what is in there!

How, though, is that possible? Take a peek at the illustration in the first picture below. Molecules in polymer acted upon by electricity. See through! See? And not only that, the fridge is one long tube for easy turning on the inside. Just like your lunch when you worked on the docks. Then when you want what you see, you just open that particular level, allowing only the smallest amount of energy spent on cooling to be wasted in the process.

I like the idea of rotating sections in the fridge!

Was the idea of trying to get the food in the shortest time as possible, is to prevent heavy use of power?
Then wouldn’t the transparent mode uses quite an amount of power also?
Or maybe I am mistaking the concept here

Love the rotation idea tho.

• Victor Assis says:

Round is not a good shape for a fridge. First, as all the other kitchen furniture is square, you will lose a lot of volume in your fridge. Second, most of the food containers are also square, so you’ll lose even more.
The door is a good idea, but the rotating shelves aren’t. They will consume all the saved energy. Make it square, with fixed shelves and the door.

• Canterburry says:

First of all, once too much ice has built up on the inner back, the part won’t rotate in any direction.

Second, if you’d have a notepad next to the fridge, you could write what’s in it on paper.

Third, to keep the door of the fridge open for a few minutes is not a problem. You’ll even have to keep this one open whenever you have return from the supermarket to refill it, and then waste more energy than it ‘would’ save.

UG lee. Actually looks like a cryogenic chamber.

I have a fridge with a glass door. It's pretty big and I can see everything in it. You can get it at the Home Depot. This isn't necessary.

Its to keep the contents of your fridge discreet, and a house looks a lot more polished and clean without your take out boxes and half eaten bowl of pasta on display for everyone to see!
