Being “smart” isn’t just for phones and TVs anymore

Soon, Microsoft’s Cortana will be able to see inside your fridge. With cutting-edge, fridge-safe technologies, Cortana can identify the foods you place there.  After spending some time with your fridge’s contents, Cortana learns your food preferences.  It can even offer up recipes or shopping lists to make your life easier.  While other smart fridges have cameras that show users what’s inside without opening the door, the Cortana version actually helps you keep your fridge stocked.  By the time this fridge hits the market, it will have captured thousands of photos of food packages from around the world. And that means you may soon have a smart new helper when it comes to shopping and fixing meals.
