CES 2018: Samsung’s HomeHub Fridge Knows Who You Are (Video)
  |  @   |  

As if the connected world wasn’t already suffering from enough information overload, Samsung has doubled-down with their smart HomeHub fridge, an appliance with an interactive touch screen larger than a standard iPad on display at CES 2018.

Wait a minute. They’re not doubling down. What’s the descriptor for the number 14? That’s right, they’re launching not two or five versions of their HomeHub fridge, but they’re launching 14. The idea here is that by 2020, Samsung wants all of its appliances to be not only IoT ready, but smart – and that’s where the title of this post comes in.

Continue below for more and a video of the HomeHub fridge.

Apple’s Siri, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa have all, in the last 18 months, begun to use their microphones to recognize different voices in the home and to use that information to respond to these voices accordingly.

Now Samsung has begun to support that technology: in a fridge.

It’s a lot, but one has to admit that it’s kinda cool. The video of the functionality was showcased during their keynote and it looked pretty useful. The only concern we here at Geeks of Doom would have is that, while we are happy to upgrade our phones and computers every couple of years, what happens when your fridge becomes obsolete?
