From the Telegraph comes news of technological insanity.
LG has wowed the crowds at this year's CES with the self-opening fridge, which senses when a human moves past it and cracks open its door.
The door cracks opens automatically when a human puts their foot in front of its low embedded sensor, meaning it can't be opened by opportunistic passing pets. However, you still need to fully open the door yourself.
I'm no technophobe but the search for novelty doesn't always take us anywhere worthwhile. Maybe the fridge is journalist bait, a product to write about rather than anything more practical.
Or maybe not. Somebody will probably buy the thing. Midnight snackers for example.
