Top 30 Multimedia Trends in July

From Immersive VR Footwear to Portable Palm-Sized Projectors

— July 28, 2018 — Tech
The top July 2018 multimedia concepts dive deep into offering next-level immersive experiences. Now that consumers have had the chance to familiarize themselves with the basics of everything from holographs and virtual reality to AR and voice assistants, a new wave of technology is emerging to support even more immersion. Some of the best examples of this can be seen in specialized footwear that works alongside VR experiences and 3D holographs that can be experienced without having to put on a dedicated headset.

Within the home environment, consumers are turning to ultra-compact portable projector systems and covert TV systems that may be disguised as wall art, or attention-grabbing entertainment systems that undeniably have a large presence that's impossible to ignore.
