Top 100 Tech Trends in October

From Chic Mixed Reality Glasses to Reduced Food Alert Apps

— October 26, 2019 — Tech
The October 2019 tech round-up embraces the category of eyewear as the list features a few high-performance examples. The MAD Gaze 'GLOW' Smart Glasses are a pair of mixed reality sunglasses that rely on immersion and plug-and-play functionality to entertain consumers. Other instances of this are the Trendloader 'Alpha' Sunglasses which are AI-integrated and can capture footage in real-time, as well as 'ORBI Marine' which is a pair of 360-degree recording eyewear.

October 2019 tech also spotlights the slickly designed, immersive water-filled headphones by Rocco Giovannoni, as well as massage units like 'Dr. MUSIC POP' which sync up to musical cues.

Virtual reality is also a highlight as companies are pushing the tech boundaries of VR headsets — Panasonic, for example, released a product with 220-degree viewing angle.
