From Smartphone Gaming Systems to Facial Recognition Playlists

 - Jul 30, 2017
Everyone has the temptation to phone it in every now and again, but if one's a progenitor of the July 2017 mobile trends, the phrase doesn't carry the same meaning. Those entrepreneurs, technology experts, and innovators phone it in every day with dazzling products in the form of both hardware and software.

On the hardware front, not every mobile accessory necessitates the need for electronic wizardry. The Trombetta, for example, is a smartphone accessory that uses acoustic mechanics. The Italian marble iPhone dock acts as a speaker, amplifying the music playing on one's phone through the very shape that it is sculpted into.

For software, companies are getting creative with the latest and hottest technologies. Facial recognition has been on the upswing ever since Snapchat's filters rose in popularity, and PeekaBeat is taking the tech in a different direction. Rather than adding a filter over one's face, the app analyzes its user's face to recommend playlists based on their mood.
