The First Smart Fridge
Addressing the issue of food waste and lack of meal management tools for families, Family Hub was designed as a smart fridge that helps users to control their meal-related activities on a single platform. This smart fridge provides the convenience of staying connected to your kitchen even when you are not at home.
My role in this project was to come up with features for the first smart fridge to ease meal management for multi people households. As an interaction designer, I was as well responsible to communicate concept details with the engineering team.
Family Hub 1.0 was released in CES 2016.
Proximity sensors on the fridge turn the proximity screen on when the user walks into the kitchem. Proximity screen give a summary of notes, events, and inventory items to the user.
The user may connect to their fridge and view cameras inside the Family Hub App on their smartphones.
