Amazon is reportedly working on a smart fridge. This internal project of the company is reportedly being said to be ongoing, which has been named Project Pulse.
According to a report published in Gizmochina, this Amazon fridge project is said to be at least two years old. However, there is no guarantee that the Amazon fridge will become a commercial product. It is also possible that if this is a priority of the company, then it can also partner with other manufacturers to make the product. Overall, things are still under the curtains. Only the information that comes in the future will be able to decide better at what level the product is being prepared.
If the Amazon Smart Refrigerator becomes a reality, it will fit snugly into Amazon’s smart home ecosystem. This will greatly increase the number of things that can happen to a smart home system. Amazon won’t be the first tech company to focus so deeply on smart fridges, though. Before this, LG and Samsung have a strong place in that area. Amazon’s specialty with this fridge will be its network functionality that will be available with such a device. Amazon’s network of grocery stores and computer vision will be used on Amazon Go Stores to identify items in the store.
For the time being, this news should not be considered more than speculation. The story hasn’t come out yet. Amazon has not given any indication about this and has denied any such news. But still it remains to be seen whether something like Amazon Smart Fridge comes out in the future. This has happened many times when Amazon has surprised its customers with its products.
