Samsung announced a unique projector device at CES 2022, called the Freestyle, as it shoehorns powerful projector features into a smart speaker form factor that weighs less than two pounds with the stand. The picture size output ranges from 30"-100", depending on the distance from the projecting surface, and the Freestyle can be powered by an external battery in case you want to take it on the road.

Samsung announced one of the coolest new products at the CES 2022 expo, a compact projector that can beam an up to 100" picture while being portable and equipped with all the modern ports and features. As expected, the projector comes with full auto keystone and auto leveling modes so that the picture perspective remains constant even if you point it at an angle. Speaking of angles, it is able to rotate 180 degrees and project everywhere around you - floor, wall, or ceiling.

Despite the dual passive radiator for its surround sound system that helps deliver deep and clear bass, the Freestyle weighs less than two pounds with the stand, so it is rather portable. In fact, it can be carried in the case accessory and powered by an external USB-PD battery with at least 50W/20V output for when you need to blow an image in the 30"-100" range while on the road. The native image contrast that the Samsung Freestyle is able to achieve is 300:1 and it can project in up to 1920x1080 definition.

The projector's Crystal Engine supports HDR10 imagery and the Freestyle can also be used as an ambient light lamp beaming up various patterns and colors thanks to a translucent lens cap. Samsung goes as far as calling the Freestyle a smart speaker, as it is "analyzing the music to pair visual effects that can be projected," and since the projector is running on the Tizen OS that its smartwatches and other clever gadgets used until recently, we can somewhat agree. The Samsung Freestyle Projector price is pegged at US$899.99 and it is available for preorder right now along with a US$59 case for carrying it around.

Wooed by tech since the industrial espionage of Apple computers and the times of pixelized Nintendos, Daniel went and opened a gaming club when personal computers and consoles were still an expensive rarity. Nowadays, fascination is not with specs and speed but rather the lifestyle that computers in our pocket, house, and car have shoehorned us in, from the infinite scroll and the privacy hazards to authenticating every bit and move of our existence.
