How about celebrating with a movie night – inside or outside? Check out the portable Samsung Freestyle Projector, which can project a 30-to-100 inch image on a nearby flat surface – you know like one of those walls you haven’t hung your pictures on yet or maybe a sheet hung up in the backyard.

And setup is easy – just plug it in and hit play. Stream movies, watch shows and play video games in Full HD – with premium 360-degree sound for an immersive audio experience – all cast from your Samsung Galaxy smartphone.

No neighbor get together is complete without music. You can party like the pros with great sound using the JBL Pulse 5. Not only does it have great sound – but it’ll fill your house or backyard with 360 color as well! Lights sync to the music or your mood. It’s also great for the outdoors – being waterproof and dustproof.

Twelve hours of battery life keeps the party going all night long… and you can connect two phones to it for a multiple DJ experience!
