LG presented the MoodUP smart fridge at IFA 2022. It had the unique ability to change the appearance of the refrigerator at the user’s request. This is possible thanks to the large LED panels built into its doors. They can display many colors.
The refrigerator can be turned off and it may appear gray or white. ThinQ’s mobile app can be used to launch the app and touch the door to select from 22 colors for top and 19 for bottom. You can also set the system to choose one of the pre-set color themes (Season, Place, Mood or Pop) automatically. For example, the Season mode uses shades from winter, spring, summer and autumn.
The panels will flash if the fridge door is left open too long or if someone forgets to close the door properly. An animation welcomes the user when they approach. The bottom panel glows a bit brighter at night to act as a luminaire, so you don’t have the main light on in the kitchen.
You can use your refrigerator as a wireless speaker. The refrigerator can be connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth and you can send music through the built-in speakers. The panels can change color and flash to match the music.
These refrigerators are sold at a price and terms that are not disclosed.
LG also displayed a table-styled air purifier, smart shoe cabinets, and an AI-controlled TV at IFA 2022.
