Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator
It seems like wherever you look someone is taking a selfie these days – even your fridge is at it! Samsung’s latest model does more than just keep food cool. On the front lives a 21.5-inch HD “digital command centre”, which can be used to manage your calendar and play music.
Meanwhile inside, three high-quality cameras capture an image every time you close the door so you can check via the companion app to see what’s inside your fridge.
Available at Samsung, priced £4,500.
There’s an old saying: ‘Invest in your shoes and your sheets because if you’re not in one, you’re in the other.’ But what about your desk? Chances are you spend a fair amount of time at that, too.
