Target groupsOther (For current Miele users, also for people living in apartment units or unifamiliar houses.)
Finding a solution to handle the online grocery commerce, while not being at home, as well as using the solution both as a delivery box and a fridge component.
The In & Out Fridge acts as a smart mobile fridge box, which can be used to deliver your online groceries while you are not there. You just take it from the specific numbered support from your front door when you arrive home and place it into your existing Miele fridge. Once you empty the box, you bring it back to the support and it can be reused for further orders.
When ordering online, the delivery program usually coincides with the remote user's 9 to 5 program, so nobody's at home to pick up the fresh groceries and even if it does, the groceries won't be fresh anymore when brought in the evening, especially if they are delievered from the market.
