FANS OF HBO comedy Silicon Valley already know the alternative uses that a smart fridge can be put to. But here's a new one - finding love.
Electronics giant Samsung has announced "Refridgerdating" and a small part of us just wants to curl up and wait for the inevitable end.
Refridgerdating allows users to meet the girl, boy or possibly leftover quiche of their dreams using its Family Hub refrigerator.
If you opt-in, the content of your fridge will be shared with others, who can silently pass judgement on the fact there are three shelves of Scrumpy Jack cider, a slightly shrivelled lemon from your last health kick, and something furry trying to escape. Though that may be the cat.
Users can then swipe right, or left according to whether your food choices (and hygiene standards) get them hot or cold.
Of course, it might also concentrate the mind on remembering to empty the salad crisper, wiping the pool of spilt milk out of the door shelf, and accepting that black olives should not be green.
If you're not a swiper, don't worry, you can do your climate controlled dating from your smartphone, or if you're absolutely nobody who has ever existed, ever, it also works with Bixby. Because that's going well.
Elin Axelsson, PR manager at Samsung told the Mail Online: "We hope people can meet under more honest or transparent circumstances with the help of the contents of the fridge, because that can tell you a lot about the personality".
We'd suggest it probably tells us a lot more about Samsung than its users.
The idea started in Sweden, which is slightly bizarre given that you'd think with their climate, they wouldn't need such an ostentatious fridge, but hey. Other countries haven't really taken to the idea yet. Funny that. μ
