Top 100 Tech Trends for 2020

From Obscuring Facial Jewelry to Reactive Autonomous Dresses

— January 25, 2020 — Tech
The 2020 tech trends list showcases some of the most cutting-edge products in this category. The round-up spotlights various innovations — from blackout curtains that can be programmed to sex aids meant for people who are differently-abled.

The 2020 tech trends also call attention to how technology has been integrated into the world of fashion and design. Ying Gao, for example, creates a robotic dress that pushes the agenda of responsive fashion. The garment boasts various color and light sensors, as well as tiny cameras that are linked to a raspberry PI computer. Ewa Nowak, on the other hand, creates jewelry that is geared toward blocking facial recognition tech from registering your face, which signifies a radically different direction of implementation.
