If you dream of finding a partner who’s as big a fan of cheese, wine, burgers and dips as you are, then you’re in luck, because a new dating app might be able to sort that out for you.
Samsung has created a new app called ‘Refrigerating’, which aims to match singletons based on the contents of their fridges.
Yes, you read that right. If it’s a dealbreaker for you to have an empty fridge or have the meat touching the veggies, you can make sure your future beau doesn’t do that before you even go on your first date.
The app can be used by owners of the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator, which retails for about $5,000 in Australia.
Just like all the phones, tablets, laptops and cameras Samsung release, the appliance isn’t just like your average refrigerator.
Built in cameras in the fridge allow you to see what’s in it wherever you are – and that’s where the dating app comes into play.
Users of the app are able to share the contents of their fridge with each other and if they both like what they see in the fridge they can set up a date from there.
If you don’t have a Family Hub fridge, you can simply take a photo of the inside of your own fridge and post it to the app.
“We hope people can meet under more honest or transparent circumstances with the help of the contents of the fridge, because that can tell you a lot about the personality,” Elin Axelsson, PR manager at Samsung Electronics Nordis, told CNet.
The Samsung fridge isn’t just a matchmaker though. You can also create profiles for each family member and share calendars, memos and photo albums.
You can also order groceries straight from an app on the fridge, browse through recipes, watch TV on the screen on the front of the fridge and listen to your favourite Spotify tunes.
