LG Announces World's First High-Definition TV Refrigerator
I have to say that if your refrigerator has a built-in TV, you're just too cool for words. Now if your fridge has built-in HDTV, I bow down to you. Yep you heard it right, the first fridge with built-in HDTV is on it's way according to this press release from LG Electronics:
Building on its award-winning Weather & Info TV Refrigerator, LG Electronics makes kitchens more innovative and entertaining with the introduction of the first-of-its-kind digital high-definition television (HDTV) Refrigerator. The new premium model is highlighted along with LG's full refrigerator line at the 2007 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas, May 8-10 (Booth C3713).
The stylish new LG HDTV Refrigerator is a unique side-by-side model that incorporates LG's powerful fifth-generation ATSC-QAM-NTSC digital television tuner that delivers crisp digital broadcast and unscrambled cable images to the refrigerator's 15-inch high-definition LCD television screen.
Besides just TV, you also get some awesome features like:
- Weather forecasts: The LG unit delivers personalized weather forecasts
based on a consumer's geographic area, along with the forecast for four
surrounding cities, via a wireless pager network.
- Recipe bank: From chilled gazpacho soup to tiramisu, the
refrigerator's built-in recipe bank can help turn anyone into a chef
with 100 pre-loaded recipes from the Culinary Institute of America;
food categories include appetizers, soups, salads, meat/poultry,
seafood, vegetarian, side dishes and dessert.
- Digital photo album: Users can upload their personal photo album via a
USB port in the dispenser area and select a slide show mode to display your favorite pictures.
- Organization tools: Easily keep up with important items with these
helpful functions including date/time clock, calendar with anniversary
alarm and more
And how much moola for this type of luxury you ask?:
The LG HDTV Refrigerator, model LSC27990TT, will be available in the second quarter of 2007 at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $3,999.
So if you like cold food and hot TV (yeah I know it's a dumb line but it's the best I could do!) be sure to keep an eye out for the LSC27990TT
