Check out some of the coolest technology at South by Southwest this year

SXSW 2016 Is Here!
SXSW 2016 Is Here!

South by Southwest Interactive 2016 was certainly one for the books. The 30th year of the festival once again brought together great minds from marketing, mobile, advertising, and more. Not to mention, President Obama made an appearance as keynote speaker.

One of the reasons a majority of people attend SXSW, however, is to network and show off the amazing app or technology they've created. It's where some of the most innovative people meet to present their ideas and concepts to thousands.

At SXSW, visited the Trade Show and SXCreate in Austin to get an up-close-and-personal look at some of the coolest tech concepts and projects out there. See some of the standout projects below:

Pico Brew: Like a Keurig, but for beer lovers. What could be better, right? Having craft-brewed beer at home can be easy as simply grabbing a cup of water, grain, and hops, and loading them into the machine. Not to mention, this will definitely be the hit of any parties you throw at home.

Tile: Tile is by no means 'new'. It came to the scene in 2014, but it's still giving a common problem (losing stuff) an easy solution (track it with 'tiles', which are bluetooth enabled). You'll no longer go through the pain of losing your keys or your phone charger -- isn't technology wonderful?

Hum On App: Music lovers out there, this app is definitely for you. The Hum On app allows you to create music notes and sounds by just recording yourself humming a melody. It can be converted into musical notes and you can even add accompaniments to it if you'd like.

PIC Flex Cam: This camera solves a huge issue that all photo-fiends have come across, lack of camera flexibility. With PIC, you can attach you camera to anything it'll wrap around for the video you've always been wanting to have. Not only that, but it comes in adorable colors and unique looks, and is also waterproof.

Bring some flexibility into your life with Flex Cam PIC. It's waterproof, shoots video, takes photos and is integrated...

Discovery VR Pressure Chamber: If you've ever felt the need for some real high pressure moments, this VR experience is the one for you. With 5 different experiences to choose from, like skeleton racing or the mega coaster, this SXSW experience was surely one for the books. Users sat in special chairs as they felt these scenarios through their virtual reality frames.

MaKey MaKey: This tiny kit allows you to hook physical objects up to programs on a computer. For instance, you can play pac man with a drawing instead of on the computer. It's a fun learning experience for kids, designers, inventors and more. It turns "the whole world into a keyboard."
