Titled “Firefly Field”, this exhibit is by multidisciplinary design studio TOER of the Netherlands and is my personal favourite.

The exhibit comprises five zones which include holographic projections, illuminated motion-capture graphics and shadow play, as well as light beams that create a mystical forest, and a light art showcase.

One hundred days before IFA 2022 opens its doors, Messe Berlin has appointed David Ruetz (53) and Kai Mangelberger (42) as the new dual heads of IFA 2022.

The event underscores Lenovo’s maturity from a device-centric manufacturer to adopt a customer-centric strategy that offers end-to-end solutions to fulfill the business and organisational needs of their customers.

Lenovo Experiential Day 2022 is the first in-person showcase in almost two years at JW Marriott Hotel South Beach in Singapore.

The Lenovo Experiential Day 2022 marks the resumption of the company’s flagship event in Singapore, from the hiatus arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with some of the regular attendees of the event, I found that not a few were surprised at the departure from the past device-centric showcase of end-user hardware.

Preview: Samsung Electronics Brings The Freestyle to Singapore

Tuesday, January 11th, 2022

Following the announcement of The Freestyle at CES 2022 less than a week ago, Samsung Electronics shipped a unit of The Freestyle to Singapore for a sneak preview for Singapore media.

The Freestyle is a 100-inch smart TV in disguise and includes a projector, speaker and ambient light rolled into one.

The Freestyle is a 100-inch smart TV in disguise and includes a projector, speaker and ambient light rolled into one.

Samsung describes The Freestyle a portable projector, smart speaker and lighting device all rolled into one.

To me, it’s essentially a 100-inch smart-TV rolled into a lightweight (830g) and portable “canister” that you can carry around to a BBQ or a hotel staycation.

Driven by Samsung’s Tizen OS and controlled by a remote control, it doesn’t have an in-built battery so you’ll either need access to a wall outlet, or a USB-PD battery bank that can put out 20V and 50W.

So without having to lug a 100-inch TV around, you can just fish out The Freestyle, plug it (USB-C port) into a power source – in front of a flat surface (which can be a wall or the ceiling) – and you’re in business … you have effectively a 100-inch smart TV in front of you to stream content from the Web.

There is an in-built 360-degree speaker included.
