Sample Audio Pro Trends - Each Audio PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online audio articles, videos and images. Examples:

Robotic Friendship Consumers turn to robots for an efficient source of socialization Implications - A shift in consumer desires has robots offering forms of socialization rather than high-tech efficiency. Providing friendship and personalized engagement, these robotic innovations help replace the need for human contact. Thus, reflecting an evolution in attitudes toward technology that goes beyond pragmatism and toward more personal fulfillment.

Unexpected Prepackaged Traditionally gourmet and homemade products undergo a reformatting Implications - Prepackaged goods are praised by consumers for their convenience, but are less favorable than fresh food for most. As consumers spend less time in the kitchen and place convenience as a top priority, brands are responding with products not previously available prepackaged to effectively deliver something for consumers in a variety of segments. This allows even the most prestigious foodie to indulge in convenience, breaking barriers down between cuisine classification.

Daybreak Nutrition Healthy and light breakfasts battle indulgent bacon-filled predecessors Implications - Diverging from the wave of ultra-indulgent breakfasts ushered in by YouTube foodtorials, lighter, more nutritious morning meals can be observed. Often heralded as the most important meal of the day, breakfast is often treated as a calorie gray zone, even by the health conscious. As the health wave rages on, however, it seems healthy eating becomes a lifestyle as opposed to a practice.
