Panasonic movable fridge
If there’s one gadget that everyone should have in their kitchen it’s a Movable Fridge, right? Because what could be more handy than that? At this year’s IFA show, Panasonic was showcasing Haiku, the robot fridge companion, on its Future Tech stand, and we’re pretty sure you’re going to want one of these when it lands.
If the mere notion of a fridge that you can drive around your home doesn’t get you doing a little dance on the spot, then you need to have a word with yourself. This isn’t just game-changing, it’s life-changing. Just speak the word ‘Haiku’, tell it where you want it to go, and it’ll move from its resting position and automatically trundle its way to you, avoiding any obstacles along the way, just like a robot vacuum would. Only, instead of cleaning your house – a pretty useful function, we’ll admit – it brings you beer. If that’s not the gadget the world has been waiting for, then T3 will eat its hat (and buy you a beer). Now, before you go off to let everyone know that you’ve found your life partner, there’s an obvious downside here: you’ll need a pretty clear and navigable floor path between it and you. Also, it’s just a prototype – but Panasonic thinks it could be a full product in five years or so. Price £TBC Available TBC URL panasonic.com
