- There's a prototype for a sustainable portable refrigerator for small volume containers that doesn't require electricity. It still needs to be heated up in some way for the thermodynamics of it to work, but it's an interesting self-contained device for remote locations... or for camping trips? [url]
- Some nicely-designed containers could help folks store food without refrigeration while still keeping food fresh. Storing eggs at room temperature seems really strange to most Americans. [url]
- Mohammed Bah Abba won a Rolex Award for re-discovering a pot-in-pot refrigeration device (aka a zeer) that can keep food cool by taking advantage of evaporative cooling. A zeer costs about $1 to make and is just a couple of nested clay pots with wet sand between them. [url]
