Crowdsourcing Mornings: Opal Nugget Ice Maker


Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Opal is an icemaker designed for the enthusiasts: people who drop by their favorite restaurant on the weekend to pick up a bag of that special soft ice or have googled “nugget ice maker for home” only to find that home nugget ice makers start at $2000 – $3000.  Opal only does one thing: make chewable, craveable nugget ice. But it does a really good job at that one thing.  Ice doesn’t just keep drinks cold. Millions of Americans crave nugget ice for its chewability and its flavor retention properties.

Opal nugget ice is made by scraping the ice flakes off the inside of a chilled aluminum cylinder. The flakes are extruded through a round hole, compacting them into frozen nuggets of air and ice. Nugget ice is about 50% air by volume, and those tiny pinholes of air between the ice flakes are the secret to soft, chewable, flavorful ice.  Your first nuggets of ice will be delivered in about 15 minutes. At a rate of 1 pound per hour, Opal outpaces all the residential refrigerator ice makers that they have tested. You should have a full 3 pound bucket in just over 3 hours, and every time you remove ice, more will be made.
