Just when I thought there couldn't be any more innovations in the realm of new fridge designs, along comes General Electric (GE) to showhow wrong I could be. Seriously, what's there to add to the ubiquitous appliance in the kitchen? It's a device meant to keep food cold, something it's been doing for around a hundred years.

Sure, new fridges can do stuff like make ice, dispense water and improve space design, but here's one that does something I've never seen. GE's new fridge can dispense hot water at a temperature set by the user. Want some warm water? Set the dial to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Want to brew some Java or tea? Crank the dial to the maximum 185 degrees. It's a practical addition to the refrigerator that actually has a cool meaning and purpose, even if I've always been able to brew tea outside of the realm of my refrigerator.
