Amazing ‘reverse microwave’ can cool your beer in less than a minute
Great ‘reverse microwave’ that can cool your beer in less than a minute by spinning cold water around it at high speed, is revealed at CES 2020
- The device can cool a beer or a can of soda in less than a minute, developers claim
- They say it can cool a bottle of white wine to 50 ° C in about five minutes
- It is currently in the prototype phase, but should be available by the end of 2020
An amazing ‘reverse microwave’ that can cool a beer, bottle of wine or soda within seconds is revealed at CES 2020.
The Juno was developed by Matrix Industries from California, specializing in smartwatches on body heat.
The ‘chiller’ uses a thermoelectric cooling motor that spins water around the drink at high speed, so that the temperature of the can drops quickly.
Because the water is rotated around the drink – which does not move – the can is ready to be drunk as soon as it comes out and will not ‘fizz’, says Matrix.
A can of beer or soft drink of 12 oz will cool down in about a minute, while a bottle of white wine from 25 oz to five minutes
It is currently in the prototype phase and can only cool one standard soda can at a time, but developers hope to have the first commercial versions soon.
Matrix used the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to offer the device for sale, and has earned more than £ 100,000 in the first few days since the campaign went live.
Dozens of devices were sold through the platform, with Matrix suggesting that the first could be shipped in August if the tests were successful.
The crowdfunding campaign is still open for orders, including a distribution level for more than £ 7,500 that includes 50 Juno units.
It is currently in the prototype phase and can only cool one standard soft drink at a time, but developers hope to have the first commercial versions soon. The company has also developed cups for hot drinks to go into the Juno

Co-founder Akram Boukai said it “can cool your drinks quickly, without the use of noisy compressors or harmful chemical coolants.”
‘Both red and white wine must be enjoyed at specific temperatures below room temperature. With Juno you can cool any type of wine in a few minutes. “
It will not only make hot drinks cold, says Dr. Boukai that it can also be used to turn very hot drinks such as tea or coffee into cold versions.
“What we’ve discovered along the way is that Juno can do so much more than just chill wine,” he said.
“It can make your freshly brewed coffee cold, transform your hot tea into iced tea and cool your favorite beer or soda straight into the can.”
A 12 oz can of beer or soda will cool down in about a minute, while a 25 oz bottle of white wine lasts up to five minutes.

The last boxes are made from stainless steel and high-quality plastics, according to the company.
They also have an LED light to let users know when their drink is ready.
Meng He, VP of products for Juno, told the BBC that it can be used to replace mini bars in hotel rooms and is much more energy efficient than a refrigerator.
She said: ‘This is a result of thermal engineering and materials science, it is based on pure electricity, there is no environmental damage.
‘Why would you keep drinks in the fridge and use that electricity if you don’t use it? It is energy and space inefficient. ”
