Top 60 Computer Innovations in August

From Scissor-Switch Keyboards to Dual-Monitored Screens

— August 17, 2019 — Tech
Computers are a deeply integrated technology, and this list of August 2019 computer innovations demonstrates all the ways in which these devices are seamlessly adding convenience to the lives of consumers.

While they've been a common household item for a long time, computer brands and manufacturers are still finding ways to innovate and adapt to the changing needs of consumers. A perfect example of this can be seen with the Odake 'BladeX' Display monitors, which were designed with enhanced productivity in mind. These computers are ideal for travelers due to its multimedia capabilities and integrated battery pack. Meanwhile, computer accessories are getting upgraded with innovations like the 'Ventus One' -- a mechanical keyboard with increased airflow so that hands remain sweat-free.
