The Next-Gen Fridge From LG
So many of us love to simply open up the fridge and stare aimlessly into it, no doubt pondering over life’s mysteries as we search of food. However this constant hopeful opening and closing of the refrigerator sucks up a large amount of energy and power. The issue that remains unfortunately, is how can we see into the wonderful mysterious land of food without constantly letting the cold air out and stealing the food of its freshness? LG has solved this problem and has taken the smart refrigerator to the next level with their new InstaView Signature fridge.
There are currently several refrigerator brands that allow you to simply knock on their translucent door to turn it transparent and see what is inside. However, the LG InstaView Door-In-Door smart fridge not only includes this feature, but it also has an inbuilt Microsoft Surface that has an array of features fitted into it. Its multi-functional smart screen is powered by Windows 10. The smart screen allows you to make use of features like the calendar, stickers, notepads, health icons, personal labeling icons and a variety of others.
This means that you can not only easily add digital labels to food that you want to proclaim as yours, you can also mark and keep track of the expiry dates of products in the fridge. The smart refrigerator is also fitted with Cortana, the official digital assistant by Windows that allows you to give it voice commands. One of the most exciting features of the fridge however is the ability to browse the internet for recipes and even stream music right from the screen.
While LG’s rival Samsung has launched its own smart refrigerator with a similar array of features, the InstaView is still among the first of its kind in the market. It’s no wonder that the price of the InstaView fridge starts from a cool $4300.
