So I actually saw one of these refrigerators broadcasting “live” at Home Depot the other day. This baby can stream TV, act like a phone, produce video from inside the fridge, play music and connect with the internet.
Having had four kids, I’m assuming this pricey piece of equipment is best suited for homes with no children. Visions of ice-cream and peanut butter smeared across the screen come to mind, as well as the thought that slamming the door ten thousand times a day might not be great for this computer’s inner workings.
I personally think the concept of a smart TV embedded in a refrigerator door is about as smart as the the in-the-door coffee maker.
I mean seriously, why not build a toaster into the door?
Or how about a blender or mini microwave?
And just out of curiosity..how much room do these in-the-door wonder inventions steal from the space inside the fridge..you know, that area where you actually may want to store food?
Seriously… the folks who design this stuff probably need to think a bit more about the “whys” of their inventions and less about the “why nots?”
Ok, Ok, maybe I’m just showing my age here..
Maybe there really is something to be said about being able to order pizza from the door of your fridge when the live interior video shows there’s nothing to eat inside.
