    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?

    Ho-kay.
