Inverse Ice Chamber / Project

Inverse Ice Chamber

The inverse ice chamber is a smart fridge. It correlates carbon emissions with fridge temperatures. It is designed to make users conscious of their behavior. Also, it appeals to save energy, protect the environment, and cultivate a green lifestyle.
It tracks users’ footprints by a mobile application. To get emissions under control in two main areas: home energy and transportation, the fridge rises its temperature accordingly when the app receives a high-carbon behavior report. Then the app will warn users. Users can adjust their behavior to get fridges cool again. Otherwise, their fridges may end up warm for the rest of the day.
