>Samsung's new fridge has cameras inside the fridge
>You can use smartphone to check what's inside the fridge while grocery shopping so you don't end up buying items you already have
This actually seems useful.
Will this eventually become a standard feature for fridges?
"Hey ANON, you're almost out of Coca Cola^tm! Do you want me to automatically order you more for you?"
"Okay, ordering now on Amazon! Remember to drink Coca Cola^tm! (jingle plays)"
>muh everything needs to be connected to the internet so I can control it from an app
here's an idea, have a look in the fridge and make a list like everyone has been doing for as long as refrigeration has existed
I'm a firm believer in appliances that do what they're supposed to do and don't need anything more powerful than a microcontroller in them for computing
Obvious Samsung shill
But to answer your question, no. This is technology that seems novel at first but serves little to no actual purpose. If you dont know what is currently in your fridge then you probably arent the person buying groceries regularly, and simply installing a camera somewhere inside is only going to allow you to see what is directly in front of the camera.
Touchscreen fridges have been around for a while now.
why the fuck does a fridge/freezer need to do anything other than maintain its internal temperature?
meanwhile my family has a samsung fridge with a broken "door open alert bell" thing, so it just randomly dings ALL DAY LONG ALL NIGHT LONG NON-STOP. we've all become deaf to it but when i have people over theyre like "wtf is that sound?" fucking shamsung
You know those moments when you're at the fridge and think up a clever shitpost to make, and you think how great would it be if you could post it from your fridge?
Depending on where the camera is and what you have in your fridge you wont be able to see everything like you can looking in person and moving shit. Not to mention the extra cost added to the fridge.
I love using my phone for all sorts of shit that's not really needed, but I would much rather make a list than look at a live stream of my fridge at the store like a retard.
Because most are willing to compromise privacy to become technologically and intellectually dependent.
Even if privacy is concerned, maintaining it is more of a hassle than the convenience it brings.
>fridge lagdroid crashes
>the fridge is now completely locked up
>tfw a shitty mobile OS wants me to starve
The future is households of hackable appliances with builtin cameras and sensors to monitor you.
>You can now post your kids digital macaroni art to your new fridge!
>I'm excited for when people hack these to take candid shots of people going to their fridges without clothes on.
I think this is a neat innovation, which may help people. Just share the link to your fridge cam with your personal trainer! or Dietician :^)
They say that's what this feature is for, but we all know the purpose is making sure no one touches the stuff you bought or that leftover cheesecake with your name on it.
The idea of calling someone angry as shit for raiding the fridge is funny to me.
>fridge is electronically locked and people have to use a passcode to get in
>fridge records what they took
>nobody can ever get away with stealing my food ever again
The future is now.
>Not wanting a detailed Fridge Log of who's been taking your Greek Yogurt and drinking your sick day orange juice.
>Not wanting to catch a live-in or sponge of a roommate in the act of picking off stuff you've bought with your hard earned money
>Not getting all your shopping delivered
>Not shopping from the comfort of your own home in your underwear at 3am
>Having your fridge turn into another botnet
Why even live?
What, you mean you don't wan't to tweet from your fridge?
are you kidding me?
who stands next to their fridge longer than 10 seconds? thats longer than the mandatory Pandora Add.
my mom does something similar, a company sent her a scanner and she scans in the barcodes of every item she buys from the store, and in return gets a check in the mail and free products to try out
LG's Fridge Is Better Familias
you can knock on it and see whats inside or use the feet sensor to open it when hands are full.(animals wont open it)
Lmao, this is going to be the future isn't it? Cameras in all devices and rooms for "your comfort and extra features".
>the anal probe is now starting Mr. Anon
>please feel free to watch MTV® on your Apple© washroom touchscreen, while we examine your health status
>to make sure you don't forget, let us log your future Penis Inspection Day date on your mandatory Facebook™ passport
Or you could just take a picture of the inside of tier fridge with your phone before you leave the house. I'd rather my fridge have useful features, like a massive backup battery in case the power goes out and I don't want to throw out all of the meat.
>This actually seems useful.
It seems retarded and unnecessary.
Look into your fridge before you go shopping. Write a list of the stuff you need. Take the list with you when you go shopping. Buy what you need. Throw list away.
But I forgot, writing things down isn't something the younger generation does anymore.
