The Smarter FridgeCam is aiming to reduce food waste by reminding homeowners to make use of the groceries they may have forgotten purchasing.
Unfortunately, most of us know all too well that eating healthy involves a lot more planning than just buying healthy. In fact, 40% of salad ingredients bought by British families end up in the trash, instead of on the table. This new smart fridge aims to put an end to food waste by monitoring expiration dates, and even suggesting meals that could incorporate the ingredients currently sitting on the shelf. The device sends notifications through an accompanied smartphone app, ensuring that the bag of lettuce you intend to eat doesn't rot away in the crisper drawer.
London-based company 'Smarter' built the device to be compatible with any fridge, effectively transforming the household staples into a smart device for a fraction of the cost.
