We’ve all been there – popping to the fridge for a snack and a cup of tea, only to discover that our shelf is empty and our milk has mysteriously vanished. Following research that has shown that food theft is the number one annoyance in university houses, online electrical retailer ao.com is launching a refrigerator that allows flatmates to keep their own food away from prying hands. The Grocery Guardian GGL1RP4L00F, which comes with hi-tech Food Mate™ technology, is set to make squabbles over milk and the posting of passive aggressive sticky notes a thing of the past. With one in five shared households arguing at least twice a week about stolen food out of a shared fridge, the Grocery Guardian keeps a close eye on belongings, ensuring the food owner is the only one who gets to take a bite. And how does it do that? By connecting to YouTube to expose the culprit. Gulp... The shelves within the fridge freezer are covered in sectioned pressure pads that accurately measure the weight of the food on top of them. Using the front display/barcode scanner, users can log in their personal Food Mate™ account with the fingerprint recognition system and as they unpack the groceries, they can be scanned and assigned area of the fridge.
