This cooling technology is based on magnetocaloric effect; that transfers heat from the interior of the fridge to the outside of the unit. The effect can be traced back to first being observed back way in the early 1900’s. With today’s technology and manufacturing breakthrough, refrigeration by magnets is almost possible thanks to General Electric. Continue reading
