LG has wowed the crowds at this year’s CES with the self-opening fridge, which senses when a human moves past it and cracks open its door.
You do have to put some weight on the sensor in front of the fridge to get it to open, which means opportunistic toddlers or pets can’t snaffle all your food.
We think the idea behind it is that you can open the fridge when your hands are full of grocery bags.
Equally thrilling is the fridge’s ‘knock-on’ feature. You knock on the fridge door, a light turns on and the window turns transparent, allowing you to observe the delights within. Because, lest we remind you, we are living in the future.
And opening your own doors is for lesser humans.
