Lowe was hired by President Lincoln to found the army’s air reconnaissance efforts. Lowe’s flights are credited as being a precursor to the Air Force. After the war, he experimented with the cooling properties of compressed gases and developed a Carbon Dioxide cooled commercial ice-making machine. It all started in 1886.


Thaddeus Lowe invented his ice making machine in 1866.


The ice making machine is a very simple process. All it does is have a mechanical timer which send electrical currents to tell when to put water in the ice cube tray. When another electrical current goes by to tell the machine the ice cubes are ready, the freezer heats up a little so the ice cubes can get out of their tray, and when the second timer goes of the cubes get pushed out by teeth like objects.
