If you want a 21st century method of deodorizing your refrigerator, get ready to throw out that old box of baking soda and pick up the Kuro Cube. the Kuro Cube is a compressed block of white charcoal that specializes in absorbing the smells that you don't wanna smell, saving your nose from the horrid sensory attack you might get hit with whenever you open the fridge. It costs $25, and lasts a good five years, as long as you set it in the sun every now and then so it can get dried out. You can place these in other areas, too, if you want to purify the air in other rooms.

So you’re at your computer and you’re thirsty, but the fridge is at least a room away; later this month there’ll be a solution to this common dilemma.

We haven’t really checked out any high tech refrigerators of late, but Samsung’s RFG299 French Door Refrigerator caught our attention. It has 14% more storage space than others of it size because of its unique insulation to give it 28.5 cu. ft. It also has internal LED lighting, a Twin Cooling Plus System, a door alarm, and a specific storage area for pizza! The best part is its 7-inch LCD touchscreen that controls temperature, monitors its water filter, and has access to calendars, unit conversion, and nutrition information, so you will think twice before eating that double pepperoni. The fridge is available for $3099.00 with a stainless steel finish, and also comes in platinum, black and white.

We dig Minibar System’s SmartCube, a mini-fridge which is meant for hotel usage. In sizes of 22.71 x 15.83 (65W) or 19 (70W) x 17.75, it features blue and white crystal LEDs. The mini-frig comes with a remote contral with software to regulate locking, lighting, product expiration, inventory, and happy hour pricing. We like that last feature and although we realize this is too expensive for the average human, perhaps some entrepreneur will develop one for the rest of us.

When we first saw this gadget, we though it was meant to tell your shoe size electronically. Embraco, in cooperation with Intel, has created the Refrigerated Docking Station for gaming laptops that, with its compressor, churns out cool air as opposed to just blowing around what is already there. It can reduce the temperature as much as 40%. There is also a temperature sensor to keep track of its progress. Available for the Holiday rush, this should carry a MSRP of about $150.00.

All this, and perhaps a hangover as well, can be yours for $260.00.
