If you thought that Samsung came up with revolutionary products when it came to smartphones, wait until you see what they have just unveiled. Tech Times has the news.
"Samsung unveiled its new smart refrigerator at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Monday as it expands its list of Internet of Things devices."
According to Engadget, the Family Hub even has a camera, which enables you to view your items in the fridge without having to even open the door. Believe it or not, if you go grocery shopping and forget whether or not you have milk in the fridge, there is a smartphone app that allows you to see your items remotely. There are even stereo speakers on the doors that will allow you to listen to your favorite songs.
You would think that Samsung's Family Hub would cause a lot of excitement. However, commenters after the article on Engadget are rather snarky.
"Can't wait to pay the extra money so I can know what's in my refrigerator while I'm at the concert....where I'm spending most of my time starting into my phone getting unlistenable 'memories' because I failed to actually pay attention while I was there. This is a classic example of solutions in search of a problem," says MHStrawn.
"Embedding technology with a typical 2 year shelf life into a product designed to last decades seems like an awesome way to implement built in obsolescence!" explains DThor.
Luckily, at least for Samsung, commenters on Twitter were more impressed.
