Sample Science Pro Trends

Each Science PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online science articles, videos and images. Examples:

Tobacco Chic Romanticized images of smokers supersede anti-smoking campaigns Implications - Even though the health risks of smoking are more than crystal-clear, smoking is still an inspiration for an array of industries. Despite the rise in anti-smoking campaigns, fashion editorials, advertisements and photography still produce images that associate smoking with an ineffable "cool" factor.

Apocalyptic Attitude Consumers go above and beyond in preparation for doomsday Implications - More consumers are bearing a survival state-of-mind, taking the alleged upcoming apocalypse of 2012 to heart with extreme preventative measures and apocalyptic “gear,” from retail-friendly weapons to gas masks and survival shelters. This fear of impending doom among consumers presents a new and bizarre niche for anti-doomsday products, services and even brand messaging.

Unconventional Capsules The function of pills shifts from health to non-traditional uses Implications - Pills deliver simplicity and convenience, making them ideal for the busier, more stressful lives consumers are leading today. Increasingly, pills are ingested for both conventional health requirements as well as in novel situations not traditionally treated with pills, such as limiting alcohol consumption.

Autonomobiles Self-driving vehicles provide drivers with extreme convenience Implications - Autonomous automobiles are quickly becoming a reality, with variations on the self-driving car being conceptualized by designers at an alarming rate. As consumers continue to place more emphasis on convenience in their purchasing decisions, the rapid development of driver-less vehicles may just coincide with a just-as-rapid demand.

Daily 3D Consumers are bombarded with everyday 3D products and services Implications - Not long ago, 3D technology was a new and exciting innovation, beckoning consumers with the promise of an unprecedented experience when it comes to videos and games. Now, 3D is everywhere and the plethora of 3D products on the market has risen dramatically. Tech companies are infusing 3D technology into everyday goods, from cameras to products for children, as well as creating functional new products to appeal to consumers who prefer 3D in everything they do.

Efficiency Reformatted A spray format appeals to time-crunched consumers Implications - Implications - Compact, and creating an extremely efficient user experience, products that are being reformatted as sprays are on the rise. The novelty of these products has the added benefit of attracting attention to products that may not be seen as innovative in their traditional form.

Feather Tech Extremely lightweight gadgets for easy travel-ability Implications - Gone are the days when the only technology a person might carry while on the go was a Polaroid camera. Today's more tech-savvy consumer typically has a smartphone as well as a laptop or tablet, perhaps even a separate camera. This means that tech gadgets today must be designed for better portability -- they must be more sleek and extremely lightweight. As such, more and more "featherweight" computers, tablets and other devices are making their way into the marketplace, made for the tech-burdened consumer who can't part with any of his gadgets.

Good Vibrations Shake-centric innovation spawns a variety of functional products Implications - For most of us, vibrations are associated with the shaking of our cellphones (and perhaps other more risqué devices), but now an increasing number of innovators are applying "shake" technology to augment the operation and performance of some products, including alarm clocks, sports gear and dental appliances. Giving off both a tactile and audible element, these vibrating devices aim to enhance the user experience as well as provide superior functionality.

Chemical Cooking Molecular elements become more prevalent in cuisine Implications - The biological and chemical science of food preparation, molecular gastronomy, has been around for decades. However, it is only recently that the science and art form is receiving more widespread attention from both establishments and food consumers. More restaurants are centering themselves on the theme of molecular gastronomy, hoping to attract patrons through their intriguing chemical and physical food processes and laboratory-style kitchens. Likewise, innovations allowing consumers to try out their own molecular meals at home are also on the rise.

Spray-On Ease Odd spray innovations make products convenient and easy to use Implications - Why painstakingly apply something when you can just spray it on? This is perhaps the question some innovators are trying to answer as they create spray-on devices that offer convenience and ease of use. From spray-on cosmetics to spray-on solar power, these products are redefining tradition and paving a path for future spray-on innovations.

Alterna Power Exploring different solutions to power consumption via alternative energy sources Implications - Although solar power and hydro power typically come to mind when one thinks of alternative energy sources, an increasing number of innovators are looking above and beyond. We've seen wind power become more prevalent in this regard, and lately, kinetic energy -- even energy from waste. As more consumers and brands become driven by environmental issues and goals, the exploration of new sources for fuel and energy is a natural direction in the fight for a greener world.

Anti-Bacterial Fun New innovations cater to germ-a-phobes and the populace alike Implications - Consumers have become more aware of germs and bacteria and are constantly looking for sanitization products. Products that make treating this paranoia more efficient and convenient are highly successful. The bacteria detector has become a very popular item on eBay, while in Japan, germ-guard masks are commonly worn. There are even anti-bacterial dresses and stuffed animals that educate kids at a young age on hygiene awareness.
