The cooling microwave

Five young Argentines created the prototype that would solve the problem of hot beer in summer: a drink cooling machine.


Never drink a warm beer again: the dream of many is already a reality. And all thanks to the work of five young Argentines, between 24 and 31 years old, who created a machine that allows to cool drinks in seconds. Like a microwave, but the other way around.

It seems like magic, and it almost is. But magic is not behind a wand: it is behind an algorithm, from the hand of artificial intelligence. It all started when Marcos Condomí Alcorta, Nicolás Kolliker Frers and Santiago Schmidt, students of Business Administration at CEMA University, had the task of thinking an innovative product, along with their business program. Inspired by life itself, they presented the project of a machine that would cool drinks at the time. They approved the matter, of course, but they did not stay there:they decided to manufacture a prototype.

For this, they contacted technology experts: Luciano Cismondi, electronic engineer, and Pablo Di Lorenzo, engineering student at the National Technological University. The prototype was finally created by the company Chill it.

How it works

First, they developed the physics of how the liquid is cooling down and came to that “magic algorithm”. Then, they were able to abstract that mathematical model and take it to a neural network that understands, depending on the characteristic of the drink being entered, what is the best process to cool it in the shortest possible time.

Thanks to artificial intelligence, a can of beer entering the machine at an ambient temperature of 25°C can come out at 3°C in just 30 seconds. A dream come true. In addition, it allows you to choose the desired final temperature and can also detect the brand of the drink. The invention also has its sustainable part: in one day, the machine consumes 60% less than a refrigerator and cools the same amount of drink, which represents great energy savings.

One less problem, then, on this planet Earth.
