Some things are so obvious.. they are beyond my understanding as of why we do not have a mass implementation of it.
For example.. Refrigeration.. cooling.
We have nice refrigerators in our homes that give us all we need, freezing, cooling, even crushed ice for the lucky ones.
What if i would tell you that you could make that fridge 90% more efficient?
Just lay it's on it's back ( Disclaimer, do not do this in real life).
My point is, every time you open up the door, you will dump all the cold air in the fridge out in your room.
Happily replaced with the warmth of your room.
By having a lid instead of a door, you will improve efficiency with at around 90%.
I happily admit, nothing new, supermarkets and industry know this for decades, but next time you open the fridge door with bare feet... just enjoy
that coldness carrassing your toes... because you pay for it! : )
What if i would tell you your fridge do not need any moving parts?
Just heat or electricity is enough. Although we have modern Peltiers and alikes, even magnetic refrigeration..
The base patent was issued by no other then Albert Einstein !
Some clever engineered heat piping and a bit of ammonia creates and excellent cold source.
You might have one of those yourself in your camping/mobile cooler, i have one. It runs on main power, 12V and... natural gas ( i.o.w heat) .
Although to my surprise i see "geniuses" win awards re-inventing this for "vaccine tech".. and whoppa vaccines, the magical MSN term.. a hero is born,
but the tech shuffled back under the carpet.
So it is both nothing new, and nothing i invented.. And yes it is on the market.
The question is.. Why isn't this produced on mass scale?
Not only for the western world, but also for the warm dry regions.. a cheap plastic Fresnel lens could provide a freezer in the hottest climate, no
moving parts. Mass production cost way under 10 dollars i estimate.
The working fluid is ammonia, what is not pleasant, but not considered high polluting is small amounts of accidental release. Otherwise being
I actually read on Wikipedia (kuch) that the efficiency has recently been brought up to 4x times more.
In September 2008 it was reported that Malcolm McCulloch of Oxford University was heading a three-year project to develop more robust appliances that
could be used in locales lacking electricity, and that his team had completed a prototype. He was quoted as saying that improving the design and
changing the types of gases used might allow the design's efficiency to be quadrupled.
And don't get me started on Stirling based systems..
