Have you ever gone grocery shopping only to wonder if you still had a box of milk or a tub of butter left in the fridge?
Samsung hopes its new smart refrigerator will solve that problem. Embedded with several cameras and connected to the Internet, users can via an app, peek into their fridges, even if they’re many miles away.
Dubbed the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator, the Korean tech giant is espousing the belief that the kitchen is the heart of any home, and the refrigerator can act as the hub that brings the whole family together.
A massive 21.5-inch screen is built into one of the fridge’s four doors allowing families to digitally display the same things they would on an analogue fridge – photos, shared calendars, and sticky notes.
But beyond that, users can see what’s inside their refrigerators, mark the expiration dates of food items, and order new groceries all from that one screen.
The 28 cubic feet Family Hub refrigerator has built in speakers and can also play music, TV shows, and recipe videos.
And how much does the Family Hub cost? Prepare to plop down some serious cash, up to $5,000 when it debuts this Spring.
