Follow along as we explore the contours, curiosities and creator of this beautiful wonder of the computer age.

My fridge knows when my kale is stale, 2012
Another groundbreaking
innovation of the last 20 years

Imagine a world where your fridge is so aware of its environment, it’ll sniff out the wilted veggies in your fridge. That may be in the works, thanks to IBM US Patent No. 8,250,010

The electronic synapse is the foundational learning element of cognitive computing—systems that perceive the world just like your brain does. This is a far better and more efficient way to interpret information. By merging data streams of air temperature, odor, color and other inputs, an electric-synapse-based system could be able to understand the difference between crisp and rot. And a lot of other stuff, too. Now only if we could get it to run back to the store.
