The Product: Self-cleaning hi-tech ‘fridge of future’ for contemporary homes designed in UK. It’s the result of joint efforts of scientists at the University of Central Lancashire and online supermarket Ocado.
Assets: Self cleaning technologically advanced refrigerator, ability to scan the shelves to see what is in stock and use the information to plan the meals and automatically place a supermarket food order.
Key features: The refrigerator of the future tells you what to cook with the left-overs in it and automatically re-orders the fresh food. The fridge will be able to clean itself and cut down on wasted food besides offering up recipes and saving precious time during hectic modern-day lives. The smart fridge uses ‘nano-articulated technology’ shelf surfaces and ensures to keep a check on what’s fresh and what not, thereby using not so fresh ingredients (to ensure minimal food wastage) to suggest what should be made for the next meal.
What’s different: The refrigerator comes with ultrasound-scanning technology that’s built into the door to enable the fridge to ‘swipe and capture’ the food on a plate before and after mealtime, to keep a check on how much food is wasted.
Should I buy it: If you’re the one who keeps wondering (with the refrigerator door open) about what should be made for the next meal and if you feel really bad for wasting veggies and all just because you forgot you had it in your refrigerator then the smart new self cleaning hi-tech fridge of the future is your ideal pick.
Price & Availability: Currently, nothing is said about the price and availability of this cool fridge. Keeping our fingers crossed we anticipate to see it up on the market shelves soon.
