LG has unveiled a funky fridge-freezer with color-changing LED door panels that flash different colors depending on the mood and occasion.
Dubbed MoodUP, the home appliance on display this week at IFA 2022 in Berlin can transform your kitchen into a disco by flashing like a colorful dance floor.
Or the user can choose a softer color setting with light yellows and browns, perfect for brewing the first cup of coffee of the day as the sun rises.
In addition, MoodUP is also equipped with a built-in Bluetooth speaker, so the flashing can be synchronized with the beat of the music.
The price and release date for the funky new device are yet to be confirmed.

“The MoodUP refrigerator is a sophisticated home appliance that can change color to suit the user’s mood and enhance the kitchen environment,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, vice president of LG Electronics.
“Bringing color, music and convenience to the kitchen, this unique refrigerator integrates LG’s cutting-edge technologies and innovative design features, demonstrating our ongoing commitment to making life better at home.”
The appliance is divided into four sections – two cooling sections at the top and two freezing sections at the bottom.
The top right panel, one of the two fridge sections, features LG InstaView, which allows users to tap inside to see inside, although like the other three panels, it can also flash colors.
Via the LG ThinQ app, users can choose from 22 colors for the top fridge doors and 19 colors for the two bottom freezer doors.
Alternatively, users can flash each panel individually by choosing from various settings including Season, Location, Mood, and Pop.
For example, Pop quickly flashes the fridge panels in an array of bright, vibrant colors perfect for a house party.
Seasons, on the other hand, displays colors depending on the current season – for example, soft blue and gray tones for winter.

And Mood “evokes a sense of well-being through the use of soft, soothing colors,” according to LG.
Users can match their mood — or the fridge’s current color or theme — with songs from their favorite music streaming apps or from the Music Collection playlist in the ThinQ app.
LG’s new refrigerator also offers user-friendly features such as handy and colorful notifications.
If the refrigerator door sensor detects that the refrigerator compartment has been left open for too long, the bezel on the left door will flash repeatedly.
And when the MoodUP’s motion sensors detect someone approaching, both panels will flash as a sort of “welcome,” LG said.

With the LED door panels off, the MoodUP fridge features a combination of Lux Gray and Lux White for a more traditional look in the kitchen.
