Top 100 Tech Ideas in May

From Robust Party-Focused Speakers to All-in-One Multimedia Projectors

— May 27, 2018 — Tech
From party-size speakers to multimedia projectors, the June 2018 tech trends reveal a rise in the number of summer-friendly gadgets.

When it comes to summer, a good sound system is a must. One of the latest outdoor speakers to hit the market is the Sony XB41, which boasts party-ready features such as Extra Bass, Wireless Party Chain, and multi-colored LED array. For those who prefer a party for one, Master & Dynamic has created a pair of color-changing leather headphones, which use thermochromic technology to change in response to temperature fluctuations.

Beyond speakers, new tech products have emerged that allow consumers to take the multimedia experience from the comfort of the living room to outside the home. One such product that allows for alfresco viewings is the Lumes Projector, which boasts an impressive sound system, 4K videos, and more.
