Amazon looks set to take a further step into the grocery market with a fridge that detects when items are running out.
It comes after the e-commerce giant unveiled its sixth UK Amazon Fresh store in London.
According to Insider, the “smart fridge” will use the same technology from the shops to detect when food is low or close to its expiry date.
Codenamed “Project Pulse”, it has reportedly been in development for two years.
Sources also suggested the fridge could offer recipe suggestions or advice on nutrition.
Amazon declined to comment.
Last month, the trillion-dollar company opened the doors to a new Amazon Fresh store in Dalston.
Thanks to cameras that detect when customers pick up items, customers can “just walk out” with their shopping without going to a checkout.
However, it faces competition from more established grocers, with Tesco preparing to unveil similar technology at its Holborn Express store.
