The Latest Trends In Innovation

October 10, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

Trendwatching outlined 12 trends that budding entrepreneurs can try to capitalize on. Some of the more interesting ones include:

  • One touch delivery. One pizza chain is giving its most loyal customers a Bluetooth enabled fridge magnet that looks like their favourite pizza. If they press it, then they’ll see a full sized, edible version of the same pizza delivered to their home.
  • 24/7 feedback. A tennis racket has been developed that uses sensors to provide you with real time information about ways you could improve your game.
  • Tasksumers. Ways for everyday people to make a little money on the side. One website specializes in putting people in touch with travelers who could bring them things from outside their country that are hard to find locally.
  • Real World Liking. One retail store puts its clothes on hangars that display the number of “likes” on Facebook that that particular item has received.
  • Artificial scarcity. A musician has decided to release his music in a format that only one person can listen to at a time. Another bakery makes a set numbers of donuts each day and closes up after they’re sold.

The full list is fascinating and might end up sparking several ideas. Find it here.
