From goggles that can help the visually impaired regain their sight to robots that suggest the most flattering haircut, the July 2016 tech trends reveal that technology is changing our lives in a myriad of unexpected ways.

On the one hand, technology continues to be used to change the lives of those who are most in need. For instance, there are now non-invasive wearable devices that help those with diabetes access real-time glucose readings. Similarly, there are smart feeding bottles that help mothers feed infants more easily.

On the other hand, there are many technological advancements that are changing our lives in unexpected ways. As the July 2016 tech trends reveal, the fields of robotics, virtual reality and 3D printing are currently paving the way for the future of technology. Some of these futuristic tech products include VR fitness platforms, 3D-printed lawn mowers and haircut-suggesting robots.
