How will cabinets become futuristic?

Cabinets have remained essentially the same since their inception as the primary means to store household items and non-perishable foods. Cabinets are a passive means to keep clutter tucked away and organized so that items can be easily accessed. This doesn’t have to be the end of the road for cabinets, there’s room for innovation!

What if cabinets took an active role with the items they store? They could disinfect silverware, or dry and organize dishes! What if they integrated with your smartphone or Apple HomeKit to track the items taken in and out? We want to hear your ideas for the way cabinets can move into the future alongside the rest of the technology in our lives.
