Lightbulbs, virtual reality goggles and television are examples of technology that now seems pretty common—but the top June 2015 multimedia ideas reinvent these familiar forms in new ways that challenge previous limitations. With changes to function and form, these innovations open up many possibilities for new purposes and the engagement of new senses.

By blending the look of a virtual reality headset with scent packets, the Feelreal VR Mask is able to create more immersive experience than usual with sights and smells. A similar example to this is the Mask by Dashbon, which slightly augments the way a pair of headphones are worn in order to create a personal and portable movie theater.

Another standout example of innovative multimedia technology is the MirrorMirror, which uses facial recognition technology to identify an individual user and display relevant updates, emails and news. The June 2015 multimedia trends show that consumers prioritize personalization and engagement in technology.
