Electrolux Design Lab

Electrolux holds an annual competition for industrial design students to come up with technologies and creative ideas for the future of household appliances. It seems out of everything home related, people are mostly interested in the design of the kitchen - how to make it green, how to make things more efficient and  how to make you feel like you are living in a sci fi movie.

This fridge, which seems to be the fan favorite of the competition, looks like it was created by  Nickelodeon to promote sliming. (In actuality it was created by Yuriy Dmitriev from Russia) Breaking the non-stick surface which encapsulates your food, the "fridge" suspends your treats in their own random personal space. Apparently the surface deflects UV rays and anything else that could degrade your food at a rapid pace. This means no doors, no dripping water, or escaping cold air. Just a creepy goo-front loading food keeper.  Or use it as a punching bag...

The Snail below was the big winner - heating a pot or pan wherever you like - adjusting temperatures and cooking times depending upon what's in your pot.

Then my favorite, hang up your clothes and they're instantly washed. The Clean Closet (by Michael Edenius) detects impurities and through molecular technology, removes odors and dirt. If laundry never had to exist again, my life would be so very happy.
