Your a man of few words.
So I'm reading up on magnetocaloric effect, keeping in mind that the article says...
The compressor system inside has been the standard cooling force for around 100 years. It's about time for a change
and then I come across this Wiki Page
about magnetic refrigeration that says...
The effect was first observed by the German physicist Emil Warburg (1881) and the fundamental principle was suggested by Debye (1926) and Giauque (1927). The first working magnetic refrigerators were constructed by several groups beginning in 1933.
The first working magnetic refrigerators were made by several groups in 1933! Seems magnetic refrigeration an't all that new either.
One thing I have noticed over the last few years is as high tech and energy saving features increase the life expectance decreases.
But no one really seems to care anymore because when it's no longer feasible to repair a appliance that was the latest greatest thing 5 years ago the consumer is ready to purchase the next best thing to have come out anyway.
