Top 100 Tech Trends in July

From Single-Day Dating Apps to Wireless Self-Watering Indoor Planters

— July 17, 2021 — Tech
The July 2021 tech trends cover a range of products that marry convenience, appearance, and user experience. As innovations abound in the electronics industry, the integration of technology provides new opportunities for connection and accessibility.

One example of this can be found in Thursday, a dating app that only opens for a single day each week. The app employs its one-day limitation to reduce time wasted on scrolling and chatting passively. In turn, users are encouraged to be open and direct with others, minimizing dating app fatigue.

On a wider scale, the PORTAL project connects locals in Lublin, Poland to Vilnius, Lithuania through a ring-shaped videoconferencing fixture. Drawing on the power of real-time technology, the PORTAL project facilitates spontaneous communication over expansive distances in an immersive format.
