At CES 2016, Samsung unveiled a smart fridge that includes an Android-based 21.5-inch tablet in its door and calls it the Family Hub, although the interface is somewhat similar to Windows 10 UI.
But Samsung and its competitor LG are neck-to-neck in a tech war after LG’s massive comeback with their latest LG InstaView Signature fridge that runs a Windows 10 tablet on its door. Apart from the transparent door mechanism, the fridge features a fully functional Windows 10 tablet that includes a number of features. The tablet enables users to perform number of tasks involving your eating habits:
- The surface includes simple drag and drop icons and lets you label your food
- Mark food items for different family members
- Set an expiration date
- Add different health factors including carbs, fats and calories counter
- Set a timer
Of course, it can be used a simple Windows 10 tablet including the Edge browser, install applications, browse recipes, cooking videos or even watch Netflix while you cook. But what’s best is that it comes with a fully integrated Cortana assistant.
The LG Smart Instaview Door-in-Door Refrigerator is set to be released in early 2017. Even though the price has not been announced yet, it is estimated to start around $4,299.
