Top 100 Gadgets Trends in September

From Holographic 3D Displays to Skin-Tightening Devices

— September 30, 2018 — Art & Design
The September 2018 gadgets are showing off the latest developments in the tech industry and some of the examples are absolutely mind-boggling.

For beauty enthusiasts, Silk'n and Gevilan partnered up for the debut of a non-invasive skin-tightening device for at-home use. Starkey Hearing Technologies, on the other hand, appeals to those in need of a hearing aid with a next-generation device that can track fitness, translate between 27 languages and determine a "brain score."

One of the most breathtaking designs for the September 2018 gadgets installment, however, is a shape-shifting robotic installation by Los Angeles-based architecture firm Ozel Office. The interactive cyber-physical sculpture uses smart sensors, scanners, and VR technology to produce an intersection between the perceived reality and the digital landscape.
