FirstBuild Stories January 5, 2015

Introduced this morning on the floor of CES, The ChillHub is a refrigerator with two 4-port USB hubs, built-in Wi-Fi, and an open-source iOS-compatible app. The idea is that you can access sensor data and control the fridge components remotely. This “first-of-its-kind platform” enables the development of new hardware products that benefit from operating inside a cooled space.

FirstBuild, the company that developed the “smart fridge,” describe ChillHub as an open development platform designed for “makers, hackers, tinkerers and developers”.

Head below to see more new products unveiled at CES this morning including: Harman, SanDisk, Linksys, and Netgear.
