Top 100 Multimedia Ideas in November

From Video-Equipped Handbags to Predictive Health Mirrors

— November 28, 2015 — Tech
Internet-connected television sets, health-predicting mirrors, intuitive elevator designs and smart home hubs are just a few of the emerging November 2015 multimedia concepts that show technology seamlessly being worked into even the most mundane of objects. The desire for smarter objects around the home can also be seen in something like the new remote control from Savant, which can install on its own and respond to simple verbal prompts.

Flexibility inside and outside of the home remains a priority with apps that help users shape new habits, shop, or livestream content from absolutely anywhere with a reliable Wi-Fi connection.

One of the biggest developments introduced recently was the launch of YouTube Red, a paid subscription service that will give viewers access to an advertisement-free viewing experience, as well as exclusive content.
