Top 50 Multimedia Trends in July

From Motion-Sensing Music Systems to Wearable VR Backpacks

— July 31, 2016 — Tech
These July 2016 multimedia trends range from wearable VR backpacks to motion-sensing music systems like 'Point Motion,' an audio device that translates human movement into sound that can be later used to create rhythmic combinations.

Other July 2016 multimedia standouts include interactive album release parties like a recent event hosted by indie rock icons Radiohead. Radiohead's latest album 'A Moon Shaped Pool' was celebrated with an event series that took place in various record store locations across the globe. Those who were unable to attend could experience the interactive parties virtually by following all the fun online, through social media channels or with live-streams made by attendees.

In addition to a handful of music-themed examples, other standouts include professionally themed photo editors like a sophisticated tool that helps to take mobile selfies to a level of cinematic quality.
