We all know that technology is playing an increasing important part in our lives. Our homes are full of gadgets that help keep us connected with friends, family and the outside world at large. We have even seen technology play a part in modern kitchen design through such things as smart lighting, touch technology in kitchen appliances, touch sensitive doors and drawers and even remote control cooker hoods.
But the smart people at Samsung have gone one step further. They have introduced a refrigerator to the US market with a built in LCD screen that features some pretty cool apps.
How would you like to keep updated with your families activities, comings and goings? This Samsung fridge has an app for that with built in Google Calender. Or maybe you would like to leave a note for a family member. That’s not a problem. How about showing off some photographs you took. You could show friends your holiday snaps and family photos from your Picasa library, mobile phone or SD card. You can even make sure your plans for a weekend barbecue will not be a total washout with the Weather Bug app. Maybe the coolest app of all and most relevant to the kitchen is the Epicurious app that allows you to access hundreds of recipes to try out, which also means you will never run out of dinner ideas. Oh yea, you can even Tweet from it!
With all that technology you would be forgiven for forgetting about the features of the actual refrigerator itself. Well it seems like Samsung haven’t. Apart from looking great, this fridge offers large capacity and a FlexiZone counter height drawer that gives four separate temperature settings, to meet your ever-changing needs; Meat/Fish, Cold Drinks, Deli/Snacks, and Wine/Party Dishes. Plus, the customizable Smart Divider allows easy, personalized organization within the drawer.
Other features include the Twin Cooling Plus System that separates airflow from the refrigerator and the freezer to help keep food fresher for longer, superior ice production and storage and LED lighting that gives better light inside the refrigerator while also making it more energy efficient.
