16 Portable Tech Innovations

From Eco Smartphone Amplifiers to 2D Digital Cameras

— January 15, 2016 — Tech
These portable tech innovations range from eco smartphone amplifiers to interactive paper kits that bring 2D electronics to life. Appealing to tech lovers who desire budget-friendly and ultra-convenient options, these products are ideal for on-the-go use.

Standouts include the eco-amp by eco-made and the iLexan smart charger hub. While eco-made's paper-crafted cone attaches to iPhone models to boost sound quality without any cords or batteries, iLexan offers a flat and compact power station that accommodates varying levels of voltage.

Additionally, examples like LG's paper-thin display prototype are bendable and easy to travel with, ultimately changing the way consumers view traditional electronics that are otherwise stationary. Japanese web-shop Donya rounds off this list of portable tech innovations with a paper-thin digital camera that is equipped with a microSD card with 16GB of storage.
