Top 100 Tech Trends for 2019

From Style-Conscious Area Heaters to Fin-Based Automatons

— February 18, 2019 — Tech
The top 2019 tech trends see incredibly innovative examples of how the advancements of machine learning, algorithms and design are affecting intimate parts of the consumer's life — from work-related gadgets to health-benefiting inventions.

A big area for tech is sports performance. Companies have been experimenting with smart technologies to elevate the experience of exercise for consumers. PUMA, for example, launched its RS-Computer shoe which can measure calorie burn, as well as distance and steps. The shoe is incredibly exclusive as only 86 pairs have been manufactured.

Other 2019 tech trends tap into the market through the retail landscape. Globally celebrated brand Apple opened its store in Paris and the ambiance balances between tech-savvy products and naturally inspired lush interior.

To learn more about tech trends in the year ahead, check out our 2019 Trend Report.
