MK140 FM to bring the PC to the refridgerator?

MK140 FM fridge LCD

Created by remote maker Ricavision, one of the concepts for the 2007 WinHEC (Windows Hardware Engineering) conference is the MK140 FM, which if brought to market would be the first of its kind. Simplistically it is just a 3.5-inch, QVGA touchscreen, but the difference is that it sticks to a refridgerator door, and is actually a SideShow device that pulls data from a nearby Vista PC via WiFi. This allows users to check their schedule, read e-mail and view media without even turning on the computer. A stylus is used to write virtual Post-it notes. The one drawback is that it has a 16-hour battery life, so if used as an electronic memo, it may need to be recharged every night, or left plugged in. [via SlashGear]
