Our homes are changing and so are the appliances, especially in the kitchen…
More and more brands are offering personalized equipment to enhance your cooking experience. Last year at CES, Samsung introduced a line of Bespoke refrigerators that let you choose the colour of the door panels for a personalized kitchen decor. In the same vein, LG has just introduced the MoodUP refrigerator that raises the bar with its colour-changing LED door panels.
This refrigerator will offer a completely different look to your cooking space compared to the typical white or brushed metal options. You can change the colour of the door panels using the ThinQ app, which will allow you to create a personalized environment in your kitchen while you prepare your meals.
You can choose between 22 colours for the upper door panel (fridge) and 19 shades for the lower one (freezer). These customizable door panels offer unparalleled interior design flexibility. When the LED door panels are off, the fridge has a traditional look with a mix of Luke Gray and Luke White shades.
Brandt Varner, vice president of product marketing for LG Electronics Home Appliances, said:
Incorporating LG's innovative design and state-of-the-art technologies, the new MoodUP refrigerator delivers functionality and convenience by adding a level of sophistication to the kitchen, while keeping food fresher for longer. From customizable colours and moods to personalized playlists, this unique refrigerator demonstrates LG's commitment to expanding and evolving the user experience for a better life at home.”
You can choose from different colour themes such as "Mood", "Season", "Place" and "Pop" to match different moods. In addition, there is a built-in Bluetooth speaker for playing songs via smartphone, laptop or tablet. The LED panels can also change colours according to the music to make the cooking experience lively.
The MoodUP refrigerator also provides notifications through colourful lights. If you've left a door open, the LED panel on that particular door flashes repeatedly, notifying you to close it to prevent energy loss. There are also built-in motion sensors, which will make it much easier to grab snacks in the middle of the night.
LG has used its own AI chip that enhances the user experience with voice and vision recognition and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
