LG InstaView ThinQ Alexa fridge adds clever kitchen tricks

LG InstaView ThinQ Alexa fridge adds clever kitchen tricks

LG is entering into the smart fridge with a new look and style, mixed in with a bunch of new features, with their new InstaView ThinQ changing up the refrigerator game.

As a computerized refrigerator, the InstaView ThinQ is able to manage kitchen tasks such as suggesting grocery list and setting expiration dates, which should be a good measure to minimize food wastes.

The centrepiece is LG's Alexa-capable fridge, the InstaView ThinQ that has a 29-inch transparent touchscreen, webOS platform and the ability to communicate with the oven. There's also a camera inside the fridge which you can view from a smartphone to check its contents remotely.

We've told you about this last week and now the time has come for LG, the other South Korean tech giant, to tell us more about new ThinQ products and solutions. Once a recipe is selected, the fridge automatically sends the information to a connected oven with Alexa verbally guiding the chef through each step of the process, for a fuss-free cooking experience.

Threat of nuclear pact changes draws ire of Iran
Diplomacy Works, a pressure group set up by former secretary of state John Kerry to defend the deal, was scathing. He urged Iran to remain calm and continue to fulfil its obligations under the deal.

Through partnerships with companies such as Innit and SideChef, LGs Wi-Fi-enabled AI appliances can provide a wider variety of services to users. I am not 100% sure how useful that is, but what is useful is the oven can then start to pre-heat to the required temperature, it will also communicate to the dishwasher what it is your cooking so it can auto-select the correct cycle. To do the dishes, there's the LG QuadWash dishwasher that knows how long you need to clean. "By streamlining food preparation and cleanup from start to finish, LG's use of artificial intelligence in the kitchen enhances quality of life by offering innovative solutions to everyday struggles in the kitchen", LG said in a press release.

LG actually tried this two years ago, with a version called the Smart Instaview Door-in-Door that ran a full version of Windows 10, but its not clear that the company ever shipped the Windows version.

The smart kitchen has been on the precipice of going mainstream for years now.
