LG has revealed a funky fridge-freezer with colour-changing LED door panels that flash different colours depending on mood and occasions.
Called ‘MoodUP’, the home appliance, which is being displayed at IFA 2022 in Berlin this week, can turn your kitchen into a disco by blinking like a colourful dancefloor.
Or users can select a more gentle colour setting of pale yellows and browns, perfect for making the first cup of coffee of the day as the sun comes up.
What’s more, MoodUP is also fitted with a built-in Bluetooth speaker, so the flashing can be synchronized to the beat of music.
Price and release date for the funky new appliance are yet to be confirmed.

‘The MoodUP refrigerator is a highly-evolved home appliance that can change colours to match users’ moods and enhance the kitchen environment,’ said Lyu Jae-cheol, VP for LG Electronics.
‘Bringing colour, music and convenience to the kitchen, and incorporating LG’s cutting-edge technologies and innovative design features, this unique refrigerator demonstrates our continuing commitment to delivering a better life at home.’
The appliance is separated into four sections – two fridge sections at the top and two freezer sections at the bottom.
The top right section, one of the two fridge sections, is equipped with LG InstaView, which lets users see inside by knocking, although it can also flash colours like the other three panels.
Through the LG ThinQ app, users can choose from 22 colours for the fridge doors at the top and 19 colours for the two freezer doors at the bottom.
Alternatively, users can make each panel blink individually by choosing from various settings including ‘Season’, ‘Place’, ‘Mood’ and ‘Pop’.
As an example, Pop makes the fridge panels flash rapidly in a range of bright, vibrant colours, perfect for a house party.
Meanwhile, Seasons displays colours depending on the current season – so, for example, soft blues and greys for winter.

And Mood ‘elicits a feeling of wellbeing through the use of soft, soothing colours’, LG said.
Users can match their mood – or the fridge’s current colour or theme – with songs from their favourite music streaming apps, or from the Music Collection playlist on the ThinQ app.
LG’s new fridge also boasts user-friendly features, such as convenient and colourful notifications.
When the refrigerator’s door sensor detects that the fridge compartment has been left open for too long, the panel on the door left open blinks repeatedly.
And when the MoodUP’s motion sensors detect that someone is approaching, both panels blink as a kind of ‘welcome’, LG said.

With its LED door panels switched off, the MoodUP refrigerator offers a combination of Lux Gray and Lux White for a more traditional look in the kitchen.
