It's so easy for edibles to get lost in deep refrigerator, causing you to forget about certain items until they're well beyond their expiration dates. This innovative QR Fridge Magnet offers a solution to keeping the contents in check by displaying the specs on each food on the door of your appliance.

Liao Haibo, Hu Yaxing, Chen Zhipeng and Tang Yigang collaborated on this clever culinary invention, winning them a 2013 Red Dot Award. It's a small device, about the size of your typical refrigerator magnet, and it's transparent with a text and image display. Scan the QR code on a fruit or a vegetable and information about its production date and location will be shown. Stick the QR Fridge Magnet where you'll see it and it will constantly update the freshness of that item.
