Slapping a miniaturized telly on a fridge isn’t new, but the people at R&R Associates do the competition one better with the Refrigerator 2 concept, a ‘smart’ fridge that has a 14.1 inch LCD TV.
The TV is compatible with cable or satellite and is ideal for watching your favorite programs plus surfing online for recipes. Of course, it also plays your favorite DVDs and music for a soundtrack to your pizza party.
But wait, can you and your friends play videogames on it? We honestly can’t say because the press material left this bit out.
In case you forgot, there’s a refrigerator behind it that packs a load of cutting edge tech to keep your food fresh (or at least microwaveable) and ice frosty. Throw in temperature controls, ice dispenser, sensors and water filters galore.
To cite the official specs, there are 26 cubic feet of space for your eggs, milk, butter, veggies, leftover pizza and uneaten takeout. It’s child-proof too.
Since most kitchens have displays these days of one sort or another, this makes perfect sense though I wonder, won’t the heat from the LCD melt the freezer contents? Well, if they work that kink out, the only thing that’s needed is staying away from the fridge while dad is watching his morning news.
