Top 100 Tech Trends in August

From Adaptable Foldable Phone Devices to Inflatable Printed Decor

— September 3, 2018 — Eco
These August 2018 tech trends represent the latest innovations from the industry. Some of the products are dedicated to advancing our health system with cutting-edge technology. An example of that would be PillClok — a connected medication container that reminds consumers to take their prescribed doses. Others, like the Curiscope Virtuali-Tee, are more education-focused. The product is a shirt that uses AR to visually represent a human's beating heart, which introduces a gamified approach to acquiring knowledge about the human anatomy.

August 2018 tech projects extend to cover mobile phones — Samsung's foldable screen that is perfect for gamers, home decor — a sculptural levitating lamp by Luciola, as well as design-driven spaces that combine nature and UX/UI design like Apple's new store in Macau, China.
