In other words, it can become transparent. This unusual feature enables you to see what is inside the fridge so that you can pick whichever item you may need. As a result, another of the great advantages of this smart fridge is that it is not necessary for the door to be open while deciding what product you want. This new technique helps you save energy.
The big-sized tablet allows you to run most of the applications you are used to from your regular tablet. This means you can access the Internet, watch videos, search for maps, shop online and so on and so forth.

There will also be more useful applications, related to the products inside the fridge. Engineers have to put their ideas in order and apply them, and soon after that the public will be announced too.

Thus you can always go back to your old ways of sticking notes on your smart fridge just like you used to do with the ordinary one. The surface is covered by a plastic protection so that no damages will be caused to the device.
