A great deal of energy is wasted each time you play the indecisive snack game, so a concept that allows you to look into your fridge without opening the door would be a scrumptious sort of eco-friendly blessing. The Smart Fridgerator boasts the ability to present you with insight into your chilled edibles, as captured through the eyes of two inwards-facing cameras in the appliance door.

To describe exactly how one would interact with this cutting-edge contraption, picture your next visit to your refrigerator. Imagine a touchscreen integrated into its face, from which you can view and select the food of your choice, thanks to a projected image of the stocked up interior. Sensing individual items though a sophisticated system of RFID scanning, the Smart Fridgerator will show you in which compact cooling compartment your meal can be found so that less cool air ultimately escapes.
