Have internet appliances finally arrived?
Smart Refrigerator from Samsung
In 2000 at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show), LG Electronics introduced the first internet-enabled refrigerator. The refrigerator had a color TV screen on the outside along with many hi-tech features, and a price tag around $20K. About the same time Electrolux launched the ScreenFridge. In 2006, Electrolux tried again with a more deluxe version, and in 2007 Whirlpool showed a new CentralPark Connection, a data hub and entertainment center that plugs into the refrigeration. While none of these were successful, appliance manufacturers have not given up, and the new improved versions show a lot of promise, and a much lower price. Here's one model from Samsung that appears to be gaining steam.
