Top 100 Tech Trends in April

From Exclusive Cryptocurrency Crisps to Digital Nomad Power Banks

— May 1, 2021 — Tech
The April 2021 tech trends highlight the latest innovations in apps, gaming, phone and computer hardware, and much more.

Amazon Fresh opened its very first store in the UK, bringing consumers a tech-fueled shopping experience that allows them to browse its selection using their Amazon app, and then checkout with their items that are automatically added to their cart without having to wait in line. With no tills set up in the store, the Amazon team capitalizes on the added space and supplies shoppers with more room to explore and experience the product offerings that are available.

RTKFT Studios, a virtual sneaker brand meanwhile introduced its first gaming product that was created exclusively for influencer FaZe Banks. Designed as a virtual fashion piece that can be sported in-game by an avatar, the METAJACKET was sold as a non-fungible token.
