In the future, there will be refrigerators that can do more than we can imagine. They are called smart refrigerators (智能冰箱). They have tiny computers inside., with their screens on the door. They can show us what food is inside. They can also tell us what food to buy. They can even let us know what food to eat then we input the necessary health information. The more surprising thing is that they can do shopping for us when they are connected (连接) to the supermarket.
