Technology is moving at a rapid pace and there are more smart appliances coming into our homes.

BOSCH PHOTO FINISH FRIDGES
Bosch has lead the way unveiling their photo finish refrigerator line-up at IFA – the European consumer electronics show in Berlin.
It allows you to use clip-on replacement doors that can be customised with the photo of your choice.
But they have also ramped up their artificial intelligence with cameras that combine with their home connect app to perform tasks like food identification and storage suggestions.
Jo Devery from Winning Appliances told 7NEWS.com.au that more and more brands are heading in this direction.
“Beko has just introduced new technology called harvest fresh and it has blue light technology. It means that it keeps your food fresher for up to fifty per cent longer which is very topical considering all the discussion around food wastage and minimising it.”

Samsung’s newest refrigerator line is called Bespoke.
It’s for those people who want to tailor the material, colour, size and door configurations. You can even alter your choices down the road if the design aesthetic of your kitchen changes.
Alex Choros from WhistleOut says artificial intelligence is the driving force behind convenience.
“We’re starting to see more and more smart technology in appliances for example like washing machines that can kind of automatically detect your washing so you don’t have to pick out a cycle.”
HUAWEI MOBILE TECHNOLOGY
Expect to see it go a step further in smartphones – with Huawei releasing s new mobile chipset, the Kirin 9990 – which is the engine that will drive its newest devices.
Sunrise Tech Expert Val Quinn says this will enhance all the little things consumers really care about.
“Your internet speed, battery life, and even the quality of your photos will all improve.”
