Interest in "cold baths" or benchtop freezers?

Is there any interest out there in a peltier-cooled "ice bucket" or
"benchtop freezer"? Perhaps such a thing has already been developed? I
envision something that looks like a hot block but that can be used as an
ice bucket. Rather like using a thermal cycler to do ligations, but it
would be able to keep a -20c temp. - it would probably have a lid to keep
water from condensing and freezing, would have interchangeable aluminum
blocks, and would be electronically controlled.
A nifty idea would be to have a peltier unit between a hot block and a
cold block, so you could have -both- at once - but of course temp
regulation in one would be at the mercy of the other.
Anyway, can anyone see a use for such a beast? Willing to pay how much?
Perhaps 250.00 US?
