For everyone who stands staring blankly at the contents of their fridge, help is finally at hand. Samsung has invented a fridge you can talk to. The South Korean tech giant has fitted its voice control software Bixby, its answer to Alexa and Siri, to a Family Hub 3.0 refrigerator.
对站在冰箱前总是两眼直瞪的人来说，救星来了！三星发明了一款可以聊天的冰箱。三星将智能语音控制功能Bixby、亚马逊语音助手Alexa和苹果语音控制功能Siri植入到旗下冰箱Family Hub 3.0中。
Engadget reports the Samsung will personalise responses to individual voices so you can ask what’s new and get your personal calendar and news updates. Samsung’s website boasts: ‘A refrigerator with a Wi-Fi enabled touchscreen that lets you manage your groceries, connect with your family and entertain like never before.’
The fridge will also have some serious sounds, with AKG speakers and it will integrate into Samsung’s SmartThings ecosystem, so owners can control the lights, change temperature or even monitor a security camera from the fridge.
The fridge will also include a meal planner which personalises recipes, allergies and will even tell you when food is expiring. And you can tell the fridge to compile a shopping list which even takes into account your superstore loyalty card points. Samsung is also promising more content after forging partnerships with the likes of HomeAdvisor, Pinterest, Tasty and The Weather Company.
这款冰箱还能设计个人化食谱、记录过敏情况、甚至说明食物的保质期状况。用户也可以让冰箱整合购物清单，顺便把超市的积分也算进去。三星已和美国家居设计公司HomeAdvisor、图片处理公司Pinterest、中国烘培业高端品牌Tasty和气象信息公司The Weather Company达成合作，期待日后推出更多功能。
There is no details on the price yet, but the new fridge should be available this spring. It is unknown whether the fridge will have the word ‘no’ removed from its vocabulary as a fridge who can refuse you food will not be popular.
