Electrolux Infinity Kitchen of the Future is Open Source

electroluxinfinityi-kitchenfridge.jpg

LG a competitor to Electrolux has been touting an internet fridge for awhile with Windows underpinnings and it's never really taken off. Electrolux seems to think the world is now ready to embrace the connected kitchen and has developed an Internet fridge of its own in the form of the Linux-based Infinity I-Kitchen.

Here are some key details:

  • The Infinity I-Fridge takes the embedded computer model pioneered by LG’s offering.
  • It includes a 480 x 800 pixel touchscreen and is powered by a Freescale i.MX25 ARM processor running at 400Mhz with 128MB of RAM.
  • The fridge’s memory comes packed with over 600 recipes, ranging from appetizers and main dishes to light snacks and cocktails.
  • It also comes with applications such as Orkut, Calendar and contacts.
  • The Infinity I-Kitchen refrigerator has a capacity of 542 liters is available in Brazil for the suggested retail price of 5,999 Brazilian Real (approx. US$3,470).

We're not sure if we'd really want an internet fridge, but if it told us the weather on the door at night while we refilled our water glass, we'd probably think it was nifty. It seems like a dockable tablet like an IPAD with a friendly display would be better.

That is an amazing looking fridge. I'd probably really like having it. I'm just nervous that is would say something that would scare me, like "you need to lay off the ice cream". I think the stored recipes would be great to look through.
