- Fridge “iCool”(Concept)
Our goal: to replace magnets with widgets
- We are trying make our fridges more functional and more attractive by using magnets. Pretty soon touchscreens will be so cheap that it will be easy and inexpensive to make a screen of any size.A regular refrigerator should have a touchscreen the size of its door. Nowadays it is fairly easy to put a computer into a refrigerator. Systems like Android or a special Apple program allows to put widgets on a fridge’s screen. Widgets are available for downloading or buying. The fridge will carry the name “iCool” or “CoolWidget” (Android analogue ;)
- The screen turns on as soon as someone appears in the kitchen and it recognizes the individual using a special built-in camera. A fridge can and should interact with a person: it will make your favorite coffee, turn on a radio or TV, suggest a recipe, etc.
- A user can leave a note or put a virtual magnet from Rome. It all depends on the imagination of the widget developers’ and a user
- Everyone loves an “iCool” fridge. Everyone buys an “iCool” fridge.
