Audio Customization As maker culture expands, tech accessories receive a customized overhaul Implications - As the DIY craze continues, traditionally complex, technological devices are getting customized to satiate a need for personalization. DIY sound systems and audio devices offer cost-effective alternatives to typically high-end products, combining a need for tech integration with more sustainable product methods.

Indulgent Marketing Food services turn to excessive activities for uninhibited exposure Implications - Taking a more uninhibited approach to marketing, brands and food services are offering consumers the chance to engage in spontaneous and shockingly indulgent activities.

Collegiate Couture Brands glamorize back-to-school clothing and supplies with a grown-up appeal Implications - Young consumers are seeking to be perceived as mature, which is being addressed by brands that are tailoring school-oriented products and clothing to be stylish beyond their years. The glamorization of teen routine is creating a market demographic more attuned to adult life, and more open to designs and products previously perceived as too adult-oriented.

Beyond Visual Technology that crosses senses adds appeal for consumers Implications - Synesthesia, a talent once seen as a disability, is the ability to mentally cross senses. A step further, it has become an inspiration for innovation in the tech realm, as consumers seek more unique forms of entertainment. The appeal of being able to hear an image or smell a sound is not just a novelty, it's a means of using technology to break natural boundaries and ultimately, redefine communication.
