FAMILY HUB SMART FRIDGE
If you've got money to spend and you're in the market for a refrigerator that can do a little more than just keep your food and beers cold, Samsung has your back with the latest version of its tech-packed smart fridge. With built-in cameras, it will not only let you see what's inside, so you can check what you have left from your phone whenever you're out, it will also suggest optimal recipes for the user based on their food ingredient preferences and the expiry date of the ingredients in the fridge. Let's say the partner likes beef and hates carrots, and you don't enjoy salmon; the meal planner function proposes menu options to keep everyone happy while minimising food waste. This nifty fridge will find ingredients close to their expiry dates first and will rule out carrots and salmon as ingredients and offers recipes for food that includes beef. Use the touchscreen to food shop, share family calendars, photos, notes, stream music, radio and mirror your TV; it's a revolutionary piece of tech for the kitchen!

VanMoof the Dutch smart bike manufacturer will now offer a subscription service which gives riders access to one of its smart or electric bikes built around a one-time "key fee" for a fraction of what it costs to buy. Unlike dockless sharing schemes, VanMoof+ riders have exclusive access to a bike for as long as they choose to ride. Known greatly for their durability of bikes and their integrated smart technology, their SmartBike uses Bluetooth to recognise you so don't need keys and the theft protection service guarantees that the company will recover or replace any stolen Van Moof. The company also covers all maintenance costs for parts and labour during the subscription period - be it a flat tire, chain break or some sort of electrical malfunction. When riders are done with their subscription, they are able to sell the keys on to another user, alternatively, you can return the bike to a VanMoof store.
