I would argue that this is also a reference to The Incredible Machine and friends, where many levels revolve around conveyor belts and things on top of them that stir certain actions. Kaa-ching (talk) 10:46, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

The main problem with this design is that the bad food needs to land softly otherwise it could splash\spatter over the good food. SaintGerbil(talk) 12:17, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

I thought an alternative design for the fridge could be to have the middle conveyor belt attached to the right, leaving a gap on its left and obviously it would move toward the left. This way we could put food on the topmost belt on its left side and the food would travel along that belt then drop onto the middle one, then travel to the bottom belt and finally fall into the BAD bin. Of course we'd have to relabel all belts accordingly. DelendaEst (talk) 12:27, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Most of the stuff I find gone bad is in the bottom two drawers where it has become forgotten, like a half bag of lettuce.--DanB (talk) 14:19, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Sorry Randall: so much for brilliant... there's a bug in your design. Look at the top rack in the door. There is a chute that would prevent food from falling past when the door is closed. It would need to be rotated 90 anticlockwise in order to work. 21:30, 17 September 2012 (UTC)
