Travel-Optimized Wearable Wearable devices are optimized with travel-friendly features Implications - The latest in wearable technology includes devices that are developed with travel in mind.

Cultured Science As complacency to digital art rises, consumers react to science-based artistry Implications - There is little that cannot be rendered using computer animation, but a rising influx of scientific images as art are taking precedence for their simplistic beauty.

Artisanal Authenticity The young urbanite, craving luxury and transparency, shifts to the startup Implications - A growing preference for authenticity meshed with exclusivity is supporting the more niche, artisan brand over the conglomerate.
