Do you dream of putting your face on your refrigerator? Instead of hanging your kiddo’s unflattering attempt at drawing a family portrait on your fridge, you can give Samsung $500 to print your face or any other photo on the door.
Samsung’s line of Bespoke refrigerators will let you emblazon any photo of your choice on the double door. The image could be an artwork, memories of your time at the beach, or your favorite selfie.
The option will be available starting later this year, and you will be able to take advantage of it when ordering your Samsung refrigerator. If you already own one and want to jazz it up a bit, you can order the door panels, with each half costing $250, and replace the existing pair. You may have to wait for eight weeks for your new door to be printed and shipped to you. It may be worth all the money to have a refrigerator that looks new without actually paying for a new refrigerator.
The process, however, is simple enough and can be completed in three steps. You select your photo, edit the layout using Samsung’s online tools, and submit it for printing. The last step is the waiting process.
Samsung has been able to get testimonials for users that have enormously enjoyed using this feature. For example, Dr. Woo, one of the most sought-after tattoo artists in Los Angeles, says he like the opportunity to tell his story through his art, creating a cosmic universal language.
Katie Rodgers is another artist that has something to say about customizing Samsung’s Bespoke refrigerators. However, her own medium is not the human skin. She has plastered her own refrigerator with a photo of moonflowers on a desert landscape.
Samsung is promoting the Bespoke refrigerators with their modularity and opportunities for customization. Before this “update,” Samsung only allowed users to pick from a limited selection of colors and prints.
Meanwhile, Samsung will moderate the images submitted for printing. If your picture escapes automated filters, there is a human reviewer waiting to assess your image. The company objects to images with copyright infringement and explicit graphics.
If you are eagerly waiting to try your hands on this feature, you can set an alert to know when it becomes available here.
