The Wave uses magnetic cooling system that is based on the magnetocaloric effect, which is the ability of some materials to heat up when magnetized and cool when removed from the magnetic field. It reduces carbon emissions and increases energy efficiency. It can possibly cut energy consumption by 40%. It also reduces the cost of electricity.
The information of the wine inside of the fridge can be reviewed on the touchscreen by using Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology. Since there’s no need to take out the bottle to review the information, it reduces the energy use by opening the door less frequent. The colored circle graphic on the screen tells how ready the wine is. When the circle turns to a tinted color, it means the wine has started to spoil.
