App Rearing Parents bond with children on the topic of online interaction Implications - Identifying the necessity to learn about social media as early as possible, parents are utilizing fun, interactive ways to relay the information to their young offspring. Familiar with the online world, children are further immersed in the ways of the digital era to make adapting to future smart solutions an easier process.

Responsive Retail Beacon technology is creating a more interactive, streamlined retail experience Implications - Beacon technology, a responsive innovation creeping its way into the mainstream, is changing the possibilities and capabilities of retail. Able to automate and even customize the shopping experience, this shift will appeal to the tech-savvy consumer looking to streamline everyday tasks. By creating a more straightforward and intuitive shopping experience, brands that adopt this technology will likely lead in terms of attracting consumers who strongly value efficiency over personal connection in their busy lives.

DIY Discount The commodification of the DIY boom leads to brands adopting the ethos Implications - As sites like Pinterest and Etsy comodify the concept of DIY products, brands are responding in kind with custom products and services that give a level of discount by requiring that the consumer become part of the manufacturing process. This augmentation of the custom goods market into something that's attainable for the average consumer transitions tailored goods from luxury to average and lures shoppers who are more inclined to do it themselves. This consumer base -- also avidly involved in the online shopping world -- is accustom to the lower price points associated with e-tail and are far more interested in a partial DIY product over one that's in-line with offline costs.

Participatory Packaging Cosmetic brands seek closer consumer ties through modes of interaction Implications - With the conveniences of modern technology, consumers are becoming increasingly impatient and easily distracted, prompting retailers to look beyond exterior aesthetics to create an impression. 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. Seeking to add more individual expression to everyday items, consumers are turning to toy-like mobile accessories to express creativity. Combining childhood references with modern devices, youthful tech designs allows consumers to connect with their innocence.

Ritualized Collaboration Brands expand the product lifestyle with 'aftermarket' mods Implications - The days of singular products are numbered as the notion of co-branding and collaboration take center stage in the market. Iconic products or celebrity endorsements are pushing into new areas of marketing that ritualize two seemingly separate products. Creating a market where one seemingly requires the other to be complete, brands are evolving the traditional notion of collaboration to the point of perceived dependence for consumers looking for ways to expand their own personal repertoire of brand prowess.
