But teleporting? Well the fridge's designer, a Thai student called Dulyawat Wongnawa reckons 'In the next 90 years, we will see a lot of technologies that today we think are completely impossible. Even though my teleportation concept might sound far-fetched, scientists have already succeeded in teleporting small particles such as photons. So over the next 90 years, this technology will have time to develop and become part of our everyday lives.'
It's Saint Patrick's Day, and although that probably has some great significance to many, in my experience it's mainly an annual excuse for people to drink heavily and wear green.
But that doesn't mean you have to forget about tech for the day - no siree! Before you go out to celebrate one of Ireland's patron Saints, be prepared for anything with our top 10 drinking gadgets! We've scoured the web for the most inventive, unusual, fun and simply baffling devices to help the day go off with a bang.

Here's something I doubt you'll see at MWC and probably for a very good reason. There's not many people who enjoy dropping their phone on the floor ,so any footwear company would be hard pressed to sell the idea of walking on it for several miles a day.
However, a chap by the names of mikeyberman has put together a guide on Instructables of how to make the perfect device for getting your phone into places you shouldn't...
This scares me a little. It's a little bag with a heating element in, which claims to cook your lunch when plugged in via USB. In reality though, 60C is barely warmer than a cup of tea - certainly not enough to kill any bacteria. Don't rely on it to grill a steak beyond "rare".
On the other hand, if all you're doing is heating up your cous-cous, then my objection isn't so pronounced. Who knows? Maybe in the hands of Heston Blumenthal it could be a force for good. Now there's a program I'd like to see - Heston Blumenthal's USB Lunchbox.

Adventurer and after-dinner speaker Neil Laughton's customised dune buggy can fly. So he's going to fly it - taking off from London this Wednesday, and landing/rolling up in Timbuktu approximately 42 days later.
The buggy comes with a detachable ParaWing (parachute/aerofoil thing) and has a fan on the back of it, allowing it to take off into the sky when it hits 45mph - and it can then cruise at 70mph at a possible and terrifying maximum altitude of 15,000 feet...
If you're young and still flexible enough to find the idea of (a) being outside in the cold and (b) hurtling down a hill really fast sitting on a piece of plastic enjoyable, here's the answer to your extreme sports prayers - a sled that works just as well on grass as on snow.
The Ice Meister SLICER is a grass-based sled that'll keep your bottom aching and your knuckles freshly grazed all year round, thanks to its removable sliders that users take out, freeze, then reattach...
