From AI-Intergrated Car Assistants to 3D-Printed Cheeses

 - Apr 29, 2017
The April 2017 technology trends show that technology isn't always about adding more. In theory, new technological developments contribute to more: more devices, a greater output of some good or service, or more experiences in general. But, on a metaphorical level, technology can also contribute to less. In April, technology trends that have to do with cleanliness and paring down abound.

One of the most visible of the cleanliness-focused tech trends in April 2017 is, in reality, invisible. Several devices use ultraviolet light to clean, such as the Orb Germ-Killing UV Light Ball. The device uses UV's natural ability to kill bacteria, sterilizing any area that it is shined upon.

The Xiaomi Car Air Purifier is another device that cleans invisibly, knocking out air pollutants in one's vehicle with a powerful dual fan.
