Ultra Sonic Wine

No point in consuming wine that hasn’t aged sufficiently or buying plenty if you don’t have proper cellars to store them. A mid-way option is the WAVE Ultra Sonic Wine Ager And Refrigerator concept. An appliance that features two-layered shelves with the inner walls emitting ultrasonic waves, to act on the molecules of the wine, to age them! A custom touchscreen helps you navigate through the settings, helping you determine the speed of aging at the touch of a button. Definite a prized gift for the connoisseur who has serious space issues at home!

The Wave uses magnetic cooling system that is based on the magnetocaloric effect, which is the ability of some materials to heat up when magnetized and cool when removed from the magnetic field. It reduces carbon emissions and increases energy efficiency. It can possibly cut energy consumption by 40%. It also reduces the cost of electricity.

The information of the wine inside of the fridge can be reviewed on the touchscreen by using Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology. Since there’s no need to take out the bottle to review the information, it reduces the energy use by opening the door less frequent. The colored circle graphic on the screen tells how ready the wine is. When the circle turns to a tinted color, it means the wine has started to spoil.

    Wouldn't this bring down the value of aged wine, in general?

    Sounds like BS. Why would this “age” wine? It makes no sense.

    It’s too big for only 12 bottles, besides it only mentions the use of RFID but doesn’t give any details whatsoever… Also why age wines? wines that are supposed to age are done in oak barrels, not in the refrigerator.. It has a good design though

  • Angela says:

    actually each wine has a ‘best time’ for drink, ‘age the wine’ is aimed to tell their owner that when is that time for your wine. It may take ten years or more for one wine to reach that ‘best period’ and when the time goes too long the value for the wine will go down.
