THE SMART FRIDGE
It doesn’t have a sexy name (Samsung calls it the Family Hub refrigerator). But what it lacks in “coolness”, it makes up for by being, well, really cool. It has three built-in cameras inside, between the two upper doors. They operate with the fridge’s app (which you download onto your phone), that lets you see what’s inside (or not inside) the fridge without opening its doors, without you being anywhere near the fridge, and while you’re at the grocery store trying to remember if you still have soya milk.
That’s just part 1 of its smarts. Part 2: The screen on the top right door is like tablet-meets-TV. You can access Facebook, Youtube, and TV programmes through Smart View (the app that mirrors your Samsung television or phone screen), and recipes via preinstalled apps. It even streams tunes from Spotify Premium accounts. At major electronics stores, $7,499.
