HisenseThis year it almost seemed like the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas was more about appliances than it was tablets, phones and computers. We saw an Android-powered oven and even a refrigerator that incorporates a tablet built right into the door. The latter was shown off by HiSense and Andy McCaskey got a first-hand look in the video below.

The smart technology allows the owner to monitor energy usage and food usage. Of course, being a full-blown Android device, it also allows for communication, checking recipes and more. As for the specific app that the company created for this purpose, it will have bar-scanning capability so that, upon return from the market, you can enter the purchased items as they are stored away. There is even a notepad feature. All of this data can be forwarded to a smartphone.

There is a lot more included, but you have to check out the video for the full rundown. The technology is not yet available, but the company hopes to have it on the market in the near future.
