A refrigerator for under $150

It is one of the better DIY projects I have seen in a long time.

Inspired by that one and the discussion around it, I took the lazy man’s approach: one icemaker, two PVC pipes, and some hot melt glue:

It lacks enough cooling capacity to keep up with the laser for hours on end, but it’s Good Enough for my simple needs and cheap enough I won’t feel annoyed when the refrigerant leaks out next year just after the warranty ends. Not that the warranty would do any good.
