In Sinagapore, Samsung has replaced sales people in a store with a product -- a talking refrigerator -- that's capable of its own sales pitch. Agency Cheil Worldwide Singapore rigged up a T9000 refrigerator with motion sensors that activate a voice-playback system which can tell if any of the interior compartments have been touched by a curious shopper. The voice talks the shopper through the fridge's individual features and benefits, while an integrated mobile app provides even more product information.
