Top 100 Tech Trends in September

From Hairgrowth-Stimulating Headbands to Air-Purifying Face Masks

— September 27, 2020 — Tech
The September 2020 tech trends highlight the latest innovations in health and safety, transportation, smart appliances, gaming, apps, and much more.

One noteworthy feature is the VR service that was recently debuted by Kohler Waters Spa. The virtual reality pedicure includes a foot and leg massage, along with a guided meditation—which is where the VR headset comes into play. By wearing the headset, visitors can enhance their relaxation by choosing from a variety of different options that can help them focus on their breathing while transporting them to a serene environment.

Another feature comes from designers Pauline Ariaux and Jacopo Ferrari, who created a pair of sustainably made headphones that use cork instead of plastic. In addition to being more environmentally friendly, the cork is incredibly lightweight, helps to insulate sound, and wicks away moisture.
