SMEG Interstellar

SMEG fridge that can be used as a deep space freezer

SMEG make the coolest fridges (I have one) and they have just expressed a serious interest in my latest design, which takes the form of an Interstellar unit.

Like the name suggests, this fridge can double up on its ususal food storage function and be used to transport a person to another time and place, in a state of deep freeze.

It's based on the storage pods that have appeared in a number of science fiction movies, such as 2001, Alien and many others, where people emerge from years of suspended animation refreshed and not a day older than when they went in.

Of course it need not actually work in this extra capacity, as its real purpose is to simply look super cool in your kitchen with its frosted up visor and ultra brightly Kubrick Red coloured exterior finish. (see quick scribble for the basic idea)

Inevitable deluxe version features the frosted up visage of your character of choice peering out from behind the visor.

       Will HAL be monitoring your and decide when you’re off your “best if used by” date?

       (although - as cool as your drawing is and as much as I love red - the storage pods in 2001 were a sterile white).

       I realise that, but Kubrick also loved red and these are Smegs after all.

       ...placing an order for the upcoming unit with -70C mRNA vaccine storage function... [+]   

       On Earth, using the SMEG-I unit thusly will 'transport us' to the post-pandemic future, where we get near-instant access to newest-variant therapeutics.   

       Combined with the legs from Boston Dognamics, this fridge could deliver itself upon touchdown, wherewhenever in the galaxy humans terraform!

       // kubrick also loved red // fair enough, there IS a lot of red in that film.

       Check out The Shining for red.
xenzag, Apr 12 2021
  

       Ok, ok, there's a lot of red in ALL of his films. It must have been so hard for him to go with the sterile white for so many of 2001's interior shots.

       Legs are extra!

       Until this day the only reference to smeg I've ever heard is smegma.   

       ...and maybe something from Red Dwarf.   

       Why are they "the coolest fridge" ?

       ^ The dial goes to '11'

       That would make them the hottest fridge

       //Why are they "the coolest fridge"// Really? If you have to ask.........
xenzag, Apr 13 2021
  

       //That would make them the hottest fridge//   

       Fine. The dial goes to "-11".
AusCan531, Apr 13 2021
  

       That would make it a freezer
pocmloc, Apr 13 2021
  

       I think "Smeg Interstellar" was an alternate title for Red Dwarf

       Not a fan of the Smeg fridges but we have a beautiful Smeg gas hob

       // beautiful Smeg gas hob // Make those look like rocket engines <link>?

       This fridge is going to need options for extra ports, to take it from the one dimensional, to a piece of multidimensional manipulating equipment.
