Top 100 Tech Trends in August

From Mixed-Reality Cider Bars to In-Home Medication Managers

— September 2, 2019 — Lifestyle
The August 2019 tech round-up displays a vast array of products, services, and experiences that create opportunities for entrepreneurs, companies, and individuals.

There seems to be no limit to what one can do with technology. The integration of it in our daily lives surely entails a spike in quality. Ripple is a great example of this. The innovation allows for individuals who have very restricted mobility due to a medical condition or an accident to experience sexual pleasure. It is essentially a tri-part multi-sensual masturbation suit that relies on technology.

On the other end of the spectrum, the August 2019 tech category boasts strides in the use of tech for art as Carlo Ratti Associati was able to create the first-ever crowdsourced mural with drones.
