2016's most anticipated connected appliances for your home
1 Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator
This summer, you’ll be able to replace that clunky old, energy-hogging refrigerator with the gorgeous new Samsung Family Hub. Finished in sleek stainless steel, it comes outfitted with a 21.5” screen on the front. Yes, a multi-purpose screen. Leave digital notes for family members, check daily calendars, listen to music (yes, there are speakers, too!), or keep up with your favourite show from a connected Samsung Smart TV. Cameras inside the appliance snap photos of the interior each time you close the door so the next time you’re grocery shopping you can access the images on your smartphone to see if you’re out of milk, or running low on yogurt.
