It starts with a unique finish

Get up close to the Smart Window fridge, and you'll see that it isn't traditional stainless steel -- its a woven Kevlar-like design that makes for a unique and attractive finish.

LED display

There's also an LED display that disappears into the body of the fridge when not in use. Same goes for the see-through part of the fridge door -- when you're done seeing through it, it disappears, going back to a more normal appearance.

A peek in the freezer

There are multiple models, including a side-by-side and a four-door "t-type" that puts a double-door freezer on the bottom half.

Fridge up top

Up top on that model is a double-door fridge. The door on the right is the one that goes translucent as you walk up.

Door-in-a-door design

All models feature the increasingly popular door-in-a-door feature that lets you open the front panel of the fridge to reveal the shelves within. In the four-door model, you'll open that in-door compartment by pressing a capacitive icon laced right into the woven design. And again, you can see through the door. Did I mention that yet.

Fridge of the future?

The Haier Smart Window Refrigerators are due in Asian and European retail sometime in 2016, with pricing yet to be finalized. It isn't expected to sell in the US anytime soon, but here's hoping the see-through feature finds its way across the pond before too long.
