FridgeNote / Electrical Gadgets


With the hassle of refrigeration, have you ever forgotten to chuck away expired food products? Storing expired food in the refrigerators lead to breeds of bacteria, which deteriorating the inner storing environment, as well as indirectly impact on people’s general health. The refrigerator notes effectively provide solution to this problem through the infrared scan of food labels. The note records information and notifies the date of product expiration. The notes are also able to detect freshness through odor sensors. Before the food expires, the notes signal out visual and text displays for a reminder.
