FridgeCam is a new device debuted at CES 2017 that aims to make people's kitchens more efficient. The small camera fits onto one's refrigerator door and keeps track of the food inside through smart image processing. It then connects with an app to communicate with its user, offering a host of features.
The FridgeCam combines the image recognition software in the camera itself with barcode scanning available through the FridgeCam app. When placing food in the fridge, users just scan the barcode with their smartphone first and the app will automatically keep track of its expiry date.
Since the camera is able to recognize different foods, it can also automatically make recommendations for recipes. Not only does this allow people to get creative with their meals, but it also prevents food from going to waste.
