Shop from your fridge? Smart appliances evolve to wow at CES 2016

Culture
Your appliances can now go shopping for you. I'm Bridget Carey, this is your cnet update. [MUSIC] The consumer electronic show continues to roll along. And here at the Las Vegas Convention Center the show floor has opened With companies demoing their latest innovations for 2016. The media gets some early peeks at products, and so far, the stars of the show are the large home appliances. We're in the dawn of the smart home age, and companies are showing how mundane washing machines and refrigerators Can evolve. The most wild of all is a new Family Hub Refrigerator by Samsung. It brings a new meaning to Netflix and chill when you have a giant 21 and a half inch screen on the door. We got a closer look and there's more to this fridge than just throwing a tablet on the front. You can use the screen to purchase groceries with a new MasterCard app. Just make a list of what you need, and when you're ready it'll deliver your order from FreshDirect or ShopRite. Just be careful on giving your kids the PIN number for ordering, or you may end up with 17 different cartons of ice cream and Oreos. The fridge also has cameras inside of the doors, so if you're at the store and you forgot if you have milk at home, well, just open your phone app to look inside the fridge. Samsung also plans to integrate this with this Alexa. That's the voice control assistant from the Amazon Echo. The idea is to have Alexa technology inside the fridge itself. This futuristic fridge arrives in the spring for five thousand Dollars. LG has a smart fridge that has a see through front panel when you knock on the door. It's not exactly much of a time saver from just opening the darn door [LAUGH], but another feature is pretty cool. If your hands are full, You just stick you foot in front of a sensor on the bottom to pop open the door. I'm not sure if that'll also pop open when your pet sits down in front of it. Perhaps, in the near future, you don't have to buy a separate washer and dryer. LG's twin washing machine Can also dry your clothes. So, not only does it wash two loads at once but the main washing bin can switch into a dryer. A start of company called Marathon is also doing this and it's two-in-one machine is going for $1,200. Whirlpool showed off a dishwasher that can order detergent from Amazon, when it calculates that you're low on soap, and Whirlpool also has an oven that will talk to your Nest smart thermostat to alert you if you left the oven on when you left the house. So it's not all shopping sometimes it's safety. And here's some smart tech that really sucks. No really. The LG CordZero canister vacuum tracks you to follow you and move with you as you clean around the home so you don't have to lug around the engine. It's like having a little pet vacuum. [MUSIC] Those are some of the highlights from CES 2016. But there is so much more in store this week. Coming to you from the CNET stage at the Las Vegas Convention Center, I'm Bridget Carey. [SOUND]
