Announced at CES 2022, the Samsung Freestyle portable projector is prepared to ship by February 8, according to Samsung’s website. The $900 projector also is available for pre-order at Amazon , with availability listed for February 14.

Samsung Freestyle projector.

With product portability quickly becoming the norm, portable projectors are on the rise and Samsung is looking for innovation to stand out. The Freestyle is a 180-degree vertically adjustable projector with an image size varying from 30 inches to 100 inches at a 1080p Full HD resolution with real-time scaling and screen adjustment.

Samsung did not design this projector to hang endlessly in a basement theater or to have a fixed place in your living room, but instead to be brought along to parties and used around the house or workplace as a tool rather than a fixture.

At under 2 pounds, this is a projector that will feel like it wants to come with you. The Freestyle will automatically focus and level, and even color correct, depending on the surface to be projected on, allowing for simplicity when changing locations. It has built-in speakers for 360-degree sound so you won’t have to bring along your Bluetooth speaker (although it is compatible). You can also talk to the Freestyle, if that is your thing, and control it via Alexa and other smart voice assistants.

The Freestyle uses Samsung’s Tizen OS, featured on its Smart TVs, for access to hours of entertainment. This is an ideal projector for your yearly Halloween party, to stream Disney+ with your kids, or to use for multimedia art performances.

Why Samsung built an NFT aggregator into its new TVs
Samsung NFT aggregator.

It's easy to read Samsung's CES 2022 press release and scoff. Maybe it's at the images of beautiful TVs you probably can't pay for affixed to designer concrete walls in impeccable homes that you most certainly can't afford. Or perhaps it's the models doing model things in those impeccable (and impeccably lit) homes. Or maybe it's the idea of a remote control without batteries. (Which almost certainly isn't actually how that works, but that's neither here nor there.)

Or, perhaps, it's the idea of an "NFT aggregation platform" being built into the television. It sounds insane -- baking something that most people don't understand, let alone engage in -- into a TV. Most of us can't even describe what a non-fungible token is, let alone tell someone how to go get one. It's a multi-layered process that's far more difficult than taking a screenshot of something you saw on Instagram and then sticking it up on your TV.

Samsung looks for an ‘Age of Togetherness’ with new Frame, Neo QLED TVs
Samsung Micro LED 2022.

Samsung kicks off CES 2022 doing what Samsung does best -- taking its line of many televisions, already great in their own right, and kicking things up yet another notch. Smarter, brighter, better, easier to use -- all the things that make a TV more than a TV in an era in which we're spending more time in front of the TV than ever.

On the front side of things is a new home screen, "a testament to our vision for the future of TVs." Samsung is paring things down to three main hubs -- a Media Screen, a Gaming Hub, and Ambient Mode. They're mostly self-explanatory. If it's something you're going to watch (via Samsung's built-in apps, anyway), you'll get to it from the Media Screen. The Gaming Hub gets you into your cloud-based gaming services and consoles and works with existing third-party controllers and headsets. And the Ambient Mode makes it easier than ever to have something pleasant on the screen when you're not actively watching or playing something. That includes art, or photos, or even NFTs, because it's 2022 and it's all about non-fungible tokens, apparently.
