Future Technology and Gadgets

When Electrolux held a competition for people to imagine future technologies and gadgets, they received some pretty impressive entries. And it is likely that we will see some of these entries in our future. Probably the strangest of the technologies is the gel refrigerator. Instead of opening a door and sticking your food into a fridge, you simply place your food in the gel and it remains at an optimized temperature. When you’re ready to use it again, you just reach into the clear gel and pull it out. The gel doesn’t get on your hands and your food stays fresh.

In this video there are eight concepts that are being further explored thanks to the minds of some creative people looking to improve the technologies of the future.
