A Refrigerator That Only Opens If You Smile At It

Only the Japanese can come up with a smile-activated refrigerator.

Developed at the University of Tokyo, the 'Happiness Counter' is designed to ensure that one smiles often despite the humdrum of daily life.

Equipped with a camera that can detect smiles, the refrigerator door will only open if you flash a beautiful smile at it.

This may also be the solution to curbing emotional binge-eating.
