Top 100 Tech Trends in July

From Virtual Reality Collaboration Tools to AI-Powered Baby Monitors

— July 27, 2019 — Tech
A lot of the gadgets in the July 2019 tech round-up are concerned with making tasks more efficient, soothing consumers and more. Some tools boast a collaboration-forward interface that makes it easier for professionals to communicate and co-create. A great example of this is Squint/Opera who worked with BIG and UNStudio to develop the 'Hyperform' — a VR-powered platform for design-forward partnerships.

Other products in the July 2019 tech list offer a mindful approach to excessive stress, as well as individuality. While Aduri assures that users are staying on top of their meditation through a high-tech, connected pillow, Miles Kilburn — a student from the Loughborough University, is innovating by creating a smart chest binder to set non-binary people's mind at rest in a non-physically exertive way.
