CES is the largest technology event in the world. Each year the biggest names in tech showcase their newest gadgets and futuristic innovations. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, CES 2022 had over 2,300 exhibits introducing new devices that revamped the annual event. Here are the best devices that were introduced at CES 2022 that you will actually want to buy in the future.
Samsung Freestyle: Best Portable Projector
The new Freestyle from Samsung is a smart projector that you can take with you wherever you go. Capable of rotating 180 degrees, this 2-pound projector can be used to turn any surface into a screen – so you can easily watch movies on the ceiling while lying in bed.
Unlike other portable projectors, the Freestyle can display high-definition images from 30-100 inches large. It also comes with auto keystone, auto-leveling, and auto-focusing features, so your image will always look good, no matter what surface you use.
Powered by Samsung’s Tizen smart platform, the Freestyle works just like a smart TV. Plus, it also works as a smart speaker, so you can ask Alexa or Bixby to project something. If you’re not in the mood to watch a movie, you can also use it to project photos or ambient lighting.
Sony Bravia A95K: Best TV at CES 2022
There were many new TVs announced at CES this year, but perhaps the most exciting model was the Sony Bravia A95K. This new line of TVs will include the next-generation quantum-dot organic light-emitting diode (QD-OLED) panels to improve picture quality.
These new panels combine the rich contrast and deep blacks of OLED displays with the vibrant colors and bright whites of QLED displays. In fact, Sony claims the Bravia A95K can boost color brightness by 200% compared to traditional TVs, which means you can finally get the picture quality of an OLED TV, even in a bright room.
The QD-OLED panel was originally developed by Samsung, which also won the “Best of Innovation” award at CES 2022 for the technology. Samsung leases the panel to other companies, which is why Sony was able to announce the first QD-OLED TV, which will be available later this year.

Sony also announced a follow-up to the 2016 PlayStation virtual reality headset at CES 2022. The PlayStation VR2 will come with new eye-tracking technology, which will add another layer of realism to the virtual world.
The upcoming VR2 will also have a 4K OLED display with HDR and a field of view of 110 degrees for a more immersive gameplay experience. And, the headset will also have a refresh rate of 90-120Hz to help make motion smoother, which is a huge plus when gaming.
The PlayStation VR2 will also come with new Sense controllers that have haptic feedback, so you can feel vibrations when you touch something in-game. Sony is expected to launch the VR2 during the 2022 holiday season with Horizon Call of the Mountain, an original game designed specifically for the VR2 headset.
AMD Ryzen 6000 Series Mobile Processors
AMD revealed their new line of Ryzen 6000 mobile CPUs with updated cores, better graphics, improved battery life, and other features. According to the company, the 6000 series CPUs will double the gaming performance at 1080p compared to the previous generation.
The new Ryzen 6000 chips were designed with new Zen 3+ cores that were specifically designed to improve the battery life and performance of laptops. In fact, AMD claims its newest mobile CPUs will consume 30% less power, allowing laptops to last up to 24 hours while playing videos on a single charge.
In addition, the new mobile CPUs will also support next-generation technologies like PCIe 4.0, DDR5, USB4, and WiFi 6E. The company is releasing 20 different Ryzen 6000 models that will be available in over 200 laptops later this year.

Samsung Odyssey Neo G8: Best Monitor at CES 2022
Samsung has been the king of gaming monitors for years, and after announcing the new Odyssey Neo G8 at CES 2022, the tech giant is likely to keep its crown for at least another year. The Neo G8 is the first 4K monitor to support a 240 Hz refresh rate, which means motion will be smoother when gaming.
This next-generation gaming monitor also boasts a 1ms (millisecond) response time, so it’s good enough for the most competitive gamers. Plus, it uses a VA panel with Mini-LED technology, so it has better contrast and can get brighter than traditional monitors.
