Schwalbach/Ts. – September 19, 2022 – Gamers know the “problem”: the sun is shining and it’s time to get out of the living room and gaming den and into nature. But wait, what about the League of Legends sessions and those beloved Among Us rounds? Not forgetting the wonderful Mario Kart family competitions or the new tracks from Gran Turismo 7, which you all still wanted to explore? The solution is called The Freestyle from Samsung, the compact LED projector that also offers gamers all sorts of features for outdoor use. For use on the go, it is compatible with external power banks1 via USB-C connection and offers plenty of connectivity for outdoor adventures with Bluetooth, WLAN/AirPlay2 function and HDMI.2
Here are the top 5 locations for outdoor gaming:
1. Camping, RV and Vanlife
Can gaming and holidays in a bus or mobile home be combined? The answer is definitely: yes. Nobody has to miss out on a League of Legends game on a camping holiday. Just in time for the new season, The Freestyle is the ideal piece of equipment for camping holidays. With its USB-C connection, it can also be used with the on-board network or is simply supplied with power via a power bank. The camper or the awning serves as a screen. With smart calibration, The Freestyle adjusts the image on colored projection surfaces. And the auto-leveling function ensures a clear picture even on uneven surfaces.
2. With the electric car into nature
Many new electric cars are ideal as rolling power packs, as they have a bidirectional charging function for power delivery and also have enormous energy reserves – every gamer’s dream. If a WLAN hot spot is also integrated in the vehicle, the excursion into the countryside turns into a top-class MMOG event. This is where The Freestyle comes into play: With its WLAN/AirPlay2 function, it connects wirelessly to the smartphone or via HDMI to the games console. The 500 LED lumens and a 1080p HD resolution show all the details. Now only a few camping chairs and freshly charged gaming controllers are missing for the online gaming party under the starry sky. A bed sheet over a stretched clothesline serves as a projection surface – done!
Finally open-air festivals again: music and gaming, is that possible? Of course, with The Freestyle, the after party becomes a Guitar Hero or SingStar talent competition. Thanks to the built-in 2-way loudspeaker with 360-degree all-round sound, The Freestyle is already well equipped. If you like it even louder, simply connect your Bluetooth box to The Freestyle and ensure real steam on your own tent stage.
4. Allotment garden
All age groups enjoy around 900,000 allotments3 in Germany. Including gaming lovers. They don’t have to do without their cherished habits, because The Freestyle brings out all the track details of Gran Turismo to their best advantage and invites you to gamble. With a screen diagonal of up to 100 inches or 2.70 meters, every wall becomes a stadium or a race track.
5. The garage for mechanics
The private garage, also known as the Men Cave, is ideal for an evening of gaming with friends and acquaintances. It can offer a welcome cool down in the summer heat and at the same time serves as an ideal field of activity for The Freestyle. Thanks to the auto keystone and autofocus function, the LED projector is set up quickly and can be stowed away just as quickly after the game to make room for the young and oldtimers.
