Not that everyone would require one but I'm wondering how long after a successful lab prototype could migrate into the public sphere.

A device for cooling small (5-atom) molecules using electric fields is described in http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/news...is-no-myth so such a device is certainly do-able and seems amenable to mass production. However, there is a question of marketability. What use would the average zar have for such extreme cooling, particularly those who could simply place whatever needed cooling into a shady area on the outside of their habitat? If the technology has only a very limited market appeal, it is likely to remain a niche product at best and so remain relatively rare and expensive. I find it difficult to imagine the need for a domestic cooler that can refrigerate items down to one Kelvin.
