Enormous screen sets Samsung fridge apart

AS IF you didn't have enough screens in your life already, Samsung has advertised a new "smart fridge" with a giant 21.5-inch vertical touchscreen at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Unusual internet-connected home appliances are a dime a dozen at CES, but Samsung's new fridge stands out - smart fridges with small touchscreens are nothing new, but the one on the Samsung is enormous, looking more like a vertical TV screen than a compact built-in tablet.

Images of the fridge were released on the company's Korean Flickr account, and the hefty device was emblazoned on banners hung up around the CES venue. An entire panel of the fridge is taken up by the huge screen.

It's fair to assume that the fridge will be able to log what's in it and alert you when something is running low.

The Verge estimates the fridge is likely to cost something in the region of $5500.
