Einstein Invents Electric Refrigerator; Would Reduce Cost to One-fifth

Prof. Albert Einstein, author of the theory of relativity, has turned his attention from the field of abstract physics to the practical problem of refrigeration and has filed patents in Germany and the United States for electric refrigerators which will reduce the cost to one-fifth of their present price.

It is not generally known that the famous scientist is also a practical mechanic whose advice has been sought for decades by inventors.

The difference between Dr. Einstein’s invention and the present electric refrigerators is that his works without a motor and with so simple a contrivance that the inventor is confident he may produce refrigerators for the cost of $35 to $50 apiece, instead of the current price of $200 and upward.
