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:

Musical Play A need for sophisticated stimulation prompts more refined musical activities Implications - While digital devices offer children a convenient method of entertainment, the addictive qualities of online technology often halt exposure to more cultural and refined activities. As a means to add more diversity, parents are turning to musical toys that encourage sophisticated acts of play, speaking to a shift toward less conventional, more diverse forms of education.

Unexpected Dairy Alternative dairy recipes fuse nutrition with the need for diverse consumption Implications - Encouraging sources of nutrition to a society dominated by fast food can be challenging, prompting more diversified meal options to create more of an attractive allure. Aiming to infuse elements such as dairy into outside-the-box-creations, consumers seek to blend nutritional ingredients with unexpected dishes such as sushi and dumplings to add exotic elements to traditional goods. The fusion of dairy into culturally diversified meals reflect a growing need for familiar, comforting elements, even in exotic foods.

In an effort to build ties with consumers, companies are turning to product designs that require participation, prompting individuals to become more deeply invested. Packaging that encourages user input or customization allow consumers to connect with products on a more interactive level, reflecting a turn towards more personally engaging marketing tactics.

Mobile Play Consumers turn to child-like tech accessories to express playful individuality Implications - With modern designs often moving toward more minimalist and abstract aesthetics, consumers are often left with products that lack individuality or emotional appeal.

Combining childhood references with modern devices, youthful tech designs allows consumers to connect with their innocence.

Animalistic Excursion Animal tourism takes precedent amidst travelers with no time for pets Implications - Tourists seeking adventure and interaction with wildlife would usually find such an experience in the outback or savannah, but a growing number of formalized, city-based attractions are changing up perceptions of animal tourism. Targeting younger tourists and families without the time or resources to have a pet at home, the attractions place an emphasis on convenience and novelty instead of formalized accommodations that boast lavish amenities or unique dining.
