Top 100 Tech Trends in July

From Hybrid Dual-Hinge Laptops to Multipurpose Face Cover Sterilizers

— August 18, 2020 — Tech
The July 2020 tech category boasts a number of innovations that will help consumers save on time and effort. However, the list spotlights a few products that will also contribute to their health. The COVID-19 pandemic has seriously shifted the focus for society and as a result, many of these innovations are intended to help with it.

The 'CleansBox UVC,' for example, is a travel-friendly face mask sterilizers which will help consumers keep their protective equipment in check, without having to wash it too much. 'Leaf,' on the other hand, is a self-sterilizing face mask with an N99+ HEPA filter that kills almost 100% of germs down to 0.3 microns in size. This product also uses UVC to keep the unit as clean as possible between uses.
