Awesome Samsung Fridge With Built-In Tablet

We’ve covered a couple of interactive refrigerators, but this new Samsung LCD fridge is just full of awesome. The fridge comes with a built-in notepad application that lets you leave notes for yourself to remember to fulfill your daily list of errands.

Users will also be able to launch Epicurious and look for recipes for ideas on what to plan for dinner. What’s cool is the sheer number of uses this fridge has.

The robot was designed by Matt Bunting, a PhD student at the University of Arizona who is studying electrical engineering.

Matt created his hexapod using 21 motors, the aforementioned webcam, and created the device for a grad school project.
