Refrigerator / Electrical apparatus


Modern people often put fresh food in the refrigerator but forget to eat, leading to food deterioration, resulting in serious food waste, but also make the number of bacteria in the refrigerator and do harm to other food. The fridge will scan a bar code for fresh food and warn people when it is about to expire. For food without a bar code, there is a special laser device inside the refrigerator, which use a camera to observe the spread of the laser on the food surface to detect whether the food is spoiled.
