Top 35 Multimedia Trends in December

From VR Smartphone Cases to Travel Streaming Apps

— December 26, 2014 — Tech
One common thread to the top December 2014 multimedia ideas is simulated experience, making it possible for people to enjoy entertainment and immersive experiences without having to leave their homes or venture out into the cold. Rather than having to travel around the world to see the Northern Lights, an installation in Tokyo simulated the Aurora Borealis with a number of artificial lights and provided a place for tourists to snap photos.

For homebodies who like to curl up on the couch for most of the winter, eyeSight's OneCue is a handy device that makes it possible to ditch your remote control and instead, use a gesture-based system to tell the TV what it is you would like it to do.
