Minus Frozen Garbage Container

by Mark R

If you have one of those garbage cans that are stored under the kitchen counter, then you have probably noticed the smell. No doubt the rats and mice have noticed that area too.

Turkish Designer Cem Tutuncuoglu has come up with a way to keep garbage from getting smelly with the Minus Frozen Garbage Container. As you may have guessed, it keeps your garbage odorless by keeping it below zero.

So how does this work? There are cooler grills located on the sides of this guy, and an electrical engine at the base. On the top of its lid is an antibacterial blue light that prevents bacteria formation.

The garbage can goes right in this Minus Frozen Garbage Container, and I wonder how difficult it will be to take it out. After all, if it does freeze, then the garbage might be a little heavy. After all, a huge percentage of garbage is water, like a human being.

I wonder if the garbage will be frozen into one big piece that is the shape of the can. If that’s how it is going to be, maybe I should keep WALL-E under my sink. Maybe it could freeze my garbage and compact in a nice cube instead of something cylindrical-shaped.

As I mentioned before, this is a concept device for now. Perhaps we are looking at a future with frozen garbage in the house? I suppose it will inevitably lead to trash thawing in the landfill.

Ugh, nevermind that expending energy to freeze your *garbage* is about as ecologically irresponsible as you can get.

If you’re going to bother with a garbage can that sucks up energy, why not just get one of those kitchen composters and put that energy to good use?

Maybe if we stuff our landfills with enough frozen garbage that will counteract global warming…

Meanwhile the kiddies starve in Africa.. I like my gadgets but sometimes it we really do waste our resources on the wrong stuff.

I hope this product never sees mass production.

Relax people, don’t take everything so seriously. Ecologically irresponsible? How about all those landfills? are they “responsible”? How about all the plastic garbage you make from fast food, grocery bags and packaging and so on? Starving kiddies? Have you ever donated anything serious – like all your income that you don’t need in order not to starve yourself? So come on, this is just another gadget. Actually rather cool looking and if you live in a hot area – probably rather useful.
