The "A Day Made of Glass" video from Corning really got me thinking about some of the ideas I had put into the "unlikely category". Touch sensitive screens and paper thin video screens could easily make the Smart Fridge a reality.
Imagine a fridge that identified the items you put inside it, knew which were ready to expire and which were running low, and displayed all this information on its face. Or you're on your way home from work and have no idea what to make for dinner. Using your iPhone you connect with your fridge to check your recipe file to see what you could make, and what you need to pick up on the way to make it.
One thing is clear with the new appliance ideas I've been seeing: integration is going to be the new "must have" feature. Whether it's integration with technology or integration with other appliances or devices, the kitchens our children will be working in will be more intuitive and more connected than ever before.
