2016 has been a busy year in the world of tech and some cool stuff has come out across the world. Here are 5 of the best products that we think are the coolest and most cutting edge.
Instagram Live Video
Instagram has been absolutely booming the past couple of years with millions and millions of people using the app. Now they are going for live video where individual users can broadcast live from their phones to millions of viewers around the world. While watching, the audience are able to interact with the broadcaster and talk to them. This is the future so get used to it.
Spectacles by Snapchat
Snapchat is one of the coolest apps and has been for a few years now. So when they announced they were releasing Spectacles it became pretty big news. Spectacles are glasses you were but have a camera on the front so you can easily record moments from your glasses and send them as snaps. Now they are not the first to experiment with this. Google launched Google Glass a few years back but many users complained that they were too complicated and too intrusive. It seems Snapchat have taken a different approach and are keeping it strictly simple.
If you happened to start seeing a lot of artwork on your social media feeds then it was no coincidence. People had been converting their photos into artwork, not by skill but by using an app called Prisma which manipulates peoples photos and applies amazing artwork on the top of them. You download the app, add your image, apply which filter you want then you upload and share wth your friends. A huge success and used by millions around the world.
Who doesn’t love Reddit? One of the most popular sites on the web with some of the best discussions around. Well for ages users had been complaining that the site wasn’t user friendly when using on a mobile device. Those behind the site finally after many belated years released an iOS and Android app so users could use Reddit while on the move. Fantastic app and one many users have downloaded and use everyday.
