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.

For the post-recession consumer, indulgence is the true mark of prestige. Thus, cuisine and couture -- industries both based in pleasure -- have naturally converged to offer truly luxurious products.

Carbonated Confections A need to maintain relevancy has soda drinks taking on more edible forms Implications - As new beverages emerge on the market, classic brands are often overshadowed by the allure of experimental flavoring.

Thus, offering the familiarity of classic flavors through new and unexpected forms.

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.
