The invention of the microwave revolutionised cooking but now a 'reverse-microwave' does the opposite, it can chill a drink in 45 seconds.

Up until now there has not been a gadget available to cool items without a long wait.

Very cool.

Get it? COOL??

Glad this does not actually use microwaves, just good old fashioned mechanical processes in water to cool the drinks.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Just spin your drinks in ice water, they cool super fast.  Works best with long neck bottles so you don't have to stick your hand in the ice water :tu:

I thought of this 25 years ago and called it a "microfreeze"!

It's about time they used science for something useful.

Huh. Now if I don't have to worry when I microwave something, and I change my mind about eating it!

I bet it will be very expensive when it comes out on the market like microwave ovens were. It will take years before the price comes down. However, great invention. It would be ideal for beverages bought off the shelf and want a quick cold  drink.

Yes when microwaves came out every deli and service station sold super soft pies and pasties. "I'll just microwave you one." gross.  Can't see a downside with this. To quote Philip J Fry. "Shut up and take my money!"

We were able to do this in science class years ago ...

All it took was a bucket of liquid nitrogen, a pair of tongs and some REALLY thick gloves...

True, but would you want to have liquid N2 around with kids?  Sounds like something for a Jack-Ass movie.
