In kitchen appliances, LG promoted the idea that consumers own smart devices can communicate with each other about what food is stored in the fridge. A system called “Smart Manager,” would allow consumers to scan receipts and get recipe suggestions ,find out what’s in the fridge or order more groceries directly from a store, even if they are not at home.
