Here's a look at the LG Smart InstaView refrigerator with Windows 10
Here at IFA 2016, LG is showing their Signature Smart InstaView fridge running Windows 10. It's still a prototype and LG currently does not have any launch plans yet, but it's definitely interesting. Watch our video to see it in action.
What makes it exciting is that it features a 29-inch mirrored glass panel with Windows 10. That means you can browse the web, watch Netflix, create lists on OneNote, or run any other app. Cortana works, but there was no microphone in the prototype we were shown, limiting users to type on the screen instead.
The fridge has other cool features too, like knocking on the display makes it transparent so you can see what's inside without opening the door and losing cold air. There's also a Smart sensor at the bottom of the refrigerator that opens the door automatically when you step into the light projection. You can also apply different temperatures at various sections of the fridge.
LG could not comment on pricing or availability, but they have models with similar features but without a Windows 10 operating system for 6,000 to 7,000 Euros.

I do like the whole grocery shopping list and recipe reading feature, but would still want a portable device to place anywhere I wanted.
My fridge is behind me when cooking, so watching movies or reading recipes would mean a constant head turning (for me).
I find that being a major UX design shortcoming. Still, hat down to LG for thinking ahead.
