In case you were tired of opening refrigerator doors like some kind of Neanderthal, LG has the perfect fridge for you. The new LG Signature fridge has the right futuristic features to make sure you and your food really feel like it's 2016 — particularly when it comes to knowing when you need to put said food away.

LG's new fridge has two big features. The first is the door itself, which now has what LG calls its Knock-On feature, which allows you to simply knock on the door to reveal what's inside. Put more simply: knock on the door and the interior lights up to reveal whatever foodstuffs you might have forgotten about. Neat. The second, and probably most important, is the Auto Door feature, which allows the fridge to detect when your foot is nearby to gently open the door. Thankfully, the fridge is smart enough to tell it's you, and not your wandering pet or baby. Which is good, since no one wants their smart fridge to harm their baby.

Opening doors is for humans stuck in the 20th century

All told, the Signature fridge is all about you never having to open doors yourself again, because that's for lesser humans stuck in the 20th century. Unfortunately, we can confirm that this fridge doesn't have the Power of Black. Here's the rest of LG's signature lineup:
