Baby, It's Cold Outside [and Inside]

What more fitting image to mark our first snowfall and descent into single-digit temperatures? Standing in a plaza in Hamburg, Germany, this igloo is constructed out of 322 small refrigerators. Artist Ralf Schmerberg created this icy installation to illustrate how much energy could be saved if older fridges were replaced by newer, more efficient models.

A very cool idea.
