FRIGOMAT (Aug, 1957)

FRIGOMAT cools liquid as it is pumped from bottle into glass. The plastic German device fits any type beverage bottle. It was unveiled at Frankfurt International Fair.

    This was a breakthrough invention until NASA developed ice cubes three years later. lol

    Ice cubes, wonderful invention, automatically dilute your drink. Unlike this that doesn’t dilute your drink.

    Cute idea – basically a small portable application of coil-type liquid coolers.

    The innards of this thing are likely a cheap siphon pump and a coil of tubing. Insert ice, pump drink from A to B through tube, drink gets cold.

    So, Mike, you’re assuming that everyone in Germany in 1957 owned a refrigerator with a freezer? At a time when a significant percentage of the German population was still living in temporary shelters because their homes had been levelled?
