I decided to augment a refrigerator for this week’s assignment.

 I think the refrigerator has a character because there are a lot of food stories hidden in this magical box. The refrigerator could help us in planning to buy groceries according to our needs and usage pattern and manage the usage of the bought grocery. Give suggestions on recipes based on the ingredients available for cooking.

I also envision it to have human like habits or qualities such as burp when it is full or make growling noises when it is empty. I have seen people handle the refrigerator roughly – if the door is not closed.
