Smatch Refrigerator

Hunger problem has been a severe problem in the world, especially in certain area. However, food waste is still a common phenomenon in people’s daily lives. For example, some people would buy a lot of food, storing it in the fridge while forgetting to finish it before expiry date.
Smatch refrigerator is designed for this problem. As is shown below, when people buy grocery in the supermarket, all information about food they bought would be uploaded to “My Smatch” app through cashiers’ scanning. When certain food is going to expire, the fridge would collocate expiring food with each other intelligently, offering recipe suggestions for people.
