So you’re not using extra electricity, you know, cooling a whole fridge just for four or five items. But still keeping those fresh and also it keeps them visible, so you’re not forgetting things being pushed to the back of the fridge.”

Some of the world’s most cutting-edge green technology has gone on a show at a special “eco home” in London.
The idea behind the exhibit, at the “Grand Designs Live” event, is to show people how the latest innovations can help cut energy bills.
On the surface, you would not think the “Echo-Tech House” was environmentally friendly – with lots of electrical gadgets and gizmos filling the rooms.
But this is what organisers say is the sustainable property of the future.
Among the items on display is a home automation system, which can be operated using a touch screen inside a room or remotely via a tablet, mobile phone or a Wi-Fi connection.
Those promoting it say it can help cut bills by controlling energy use.
“This product essentially can take control of the entire home. It will take control of your lighting, heating, all of your audio and visual equipment, security. It also allows timed events, things like sprinklers,” says demonstrator James Brown, who is also Director of The Cinema Company.
Also on display is a shower which promises to cut energy and water and energy usage by using a recirculation system which automatically cleans, filters and pasteurises water.
Users place products into holes in a “honeycomb” type structure.
