Today it’s not only a reality, we actually have CES showcasing one fridge that not only is able to keep your food fresh, but also doubles as a widget portal.

With web widgets being all the rage these days, it was only a matter of time before a company like Samsung showcased the very best in web widget available for your….yes, kitchen appliances. Twitter, Facebook, Pandora and you better believe it, WeatherBug.
As you can see in the above video, WeatherBug’s own data is being made available in a great widget that folks in the kitchen can access without having to fish around for a mobile phone or walk around the house to get to their computer.
While cooking in the kitchen, packing lunch for the kids, whatever the motivation might be, Samsung’s new WiFi enabled refrigerator brings you the weather data you want, right there where you stand.
Want widgets for other devices?
Clearly not everyone is in the market for a really cool fridge that features dynamic widgets. But that doesn’t mean that you have to be without widgets completely! If you’d like to have Web Widgets on a Website you manage, there are two options available. The first being WeatherBug’s official Web Widgets. The second, is offered by Widgetbox utilizing WeatherBug weather data.
