The VW Bus Lives Again! But Now It Will Park In Your Kitchen As A Refrigerator

We have heard Volkswagen is rebooting the iconic VW Bus and if I ask me, I’d say the news come as both yay and nay. Yay because the microbus is coming back and nay because it will never be as cool as the iconic ride (cue The Doors’ Light My Fire). I guess somethings are best left in the era where it belongs. However emotionally tied we are to certain objects, we have to move on somehow. But moving on does not mean ditching your love for this cult phenomena vehicle entirely. You can actually still own it, but this time, it has to go into your kitchen because, the familiar lines now exist as a fridge. Yes. That’s a VW Bus refrigerator that we are talking about! Holy sh… Continue reading The VW Bus Lives Again! But Now It Will Park In Your Kitchen As A Refrigerator

This Life-size R2-D2 is Actually a Mini Fridge and a HD Projector in Disguise

Star Wars series of movies aren’t exactly movies that you drink to. Popcorn, probably, but a cold one? Well, likely not a fitting scenario. I mean, it’s not like it is the big game, right?

Well, in that case, you will be needing the Aqua R2-D2 Moving Refrigerator. Officially licensed, this full-size replica of everyone’s favorite astromech droid does not pack any tech from the galaxy far, far away.

Forget About Dispensing Ice. GE’s New Fridge Can Make A Hot Cup Of Joe

When the refrigerator was first invented, I bet nobody ever thought it could do more than keep stuff cold and make freezing cold ice cubes. Wait. Actually that’s about what it does the whole time, well, maybe with the exception of an external water or ice dispenser, but that’s pretty much it… until now.

A coffee maker built into a fridge. Sounds like a dream come true? Not quite, but it will definitely save you some countertop space, plus it looks pretty awesome anyway.
