    Default LG's "Smart Fridge"

    As someone hearabouts would say, "Well, I nevah!" A refrigerator that
    suggests recipes based on what's inside it? <staggering to the sofa to
    lie down>

    Add an electronic lock, and you'll have all the pieces.

    I really don't want to be nagged by a fridge, whatever it might be
    suggesting. My wife knows what's in the fridge - after all, she put it
    there. She also knows how to make best use of it - because she made the
    buying decisions in the first place. No doubt her buying decisions were
    based on what she wanted to cook up - and she doesn't need recipes for
    that either.

    Besides, the fridge is not that smart - it needs to be told what is in
    the fridge. Call me when the fridge instantly knows what my wife or I
    put in the fridge without any further interaction from us and also knows
    how much gets used each time either my wife or I raid the fridge, again
    without any further interaction from us. May as well be able to adjust
    the temperature of any individual part the fridge to suit any and all
    items therein - as well as letting us know when something is too old or
    going off. Then, and only then, will I call it smart.

    Next they'll have the fridge communicating with the stove and microwave
    and getting meals pre-prepared for us. Wait a minute, they have a
    version of that already - home delivered take away. I think I'll pass!

    They need to put the scale directly in front of the fridge, so your
    weight can be read while you are standing in front of the fridge
    thinking of pigging out again, and your smart fridge can then analyze
    your current weight *and* the contents of the fridge, thus suggesting
    what you *should* eat! Nanny fridge!! ;-)

    Simply tape a mirror to your fridge door.

    I'd like them to stick webcams inside so I can see what's in there
    through the Internet. :-)

    I have a full length mirror mounted on the inside of my bathroom door,
    amazing how that prevents opening the fridge door. I don't believe in
    nor do I subscribe to the fercocktah fad diets... eat everything in
    moderation and don't be a couch potato. Lately I've become a big fan
    of Mueseli, helps curb the appetite from craving junk foods and a
    small amount (1/2 cup) is very filling. This is a good buy:

    I like that recipe suggestion thing, but it probably needs to read bar
    codes. Yours isn't a bad idea either - if Alton Brown can have a
    camera inside his refrigerator, we can too!

    Does that mean you have to enter the data every time you put something
    in the fridge or take something out?

    Does that make my three bookcases full of cookbooks obsolete? Ohno!!!!!

    The mirror for the fridge should be an
    electronic camera and display, with software
    that morphs you to add 20 pounds.

    Of course, you wouldn't sell many of those.
    You'd sell a lot more of the dresser mirror
    that takes off 20 pounds and 10 years and
    increases women's busy size. Gotta be careful
    to get the software right so it doesn't do
    the same thing to men!

    And if you put on weight it locks down all the fattening stuff...

    My guess is that the cloud would eventually decide what you can and cannot
    eat. You know, with Google taking over the world and all.
