Paul Strauss over at the great Technabob blog was surfing around, looking for the R2-D2 USB Mini Fridge, when he stumbled upon this awesome Artoo refrigerator.

The product has only been made in 1000 copies and they were intended as a prize for an “Attack of the Clones” contest, held at 7-11 stores in Japan back in 2002.

  1. My, this mini fridge is as expensive as a full-size home fridge! I’m guessing this USB fridge uses the “Peltier effect” for cooling. i.e. passing electricity through folded diodes causes one side to cool and the other to heat. Otherwise, hard to get a refrigerator to such a small size.
