Some of these can be dangerous to your wallet

Cool slideshow, Lauren, but I admit a couple of them could be dangerous to my wallet, especially the solution that lets you customize your own bag! I would probably spend a bit more money on something (or be willing to spend the money) if I knew I could design it myself. That's really clever! The 3D printed tchotchkes also are quite cool. I imagine quite a few parents have had to shell out some cash so their kids could print them out. At least they are quite inexpensive.

Lauren, thanks for sharing the slide show.

Elizabeth, true it's cool to have a 3D printing for kids. I believe that when it comes to designing kids will beat the adults' cause that they don't have mental barriers.

Another innovative way of using QR codes and smart tags. Thanks to technology shopping is already fun and hassle free.

@Elizabeth – I'm sure you would spend quite a lot on customizing your own bag. Impressive to see the technological advancements but not to forget that it will have an impact on your wallet.

@Pubudu – Kids already have much freedom to innovation, they now have access to devices and information easily. I wonder what they will come up with 3D printing, their own toys.

holograms?

What about the use of holograms? Orianne Collins opened a store a few years ago in NY that used holgrams for easy shopping.  I think it closed.  2008 wasn't a good year for the luxury market.

Toyota had an impressive in-store presentation when it launched the Auris a few years ago too. 



 

It would be great to see how the technology has progresed.

Yes, Shehan alot of companies are currently working on hologram imaging. I was reading the article few days back, few companies have managed to make holovisions of small sizes and are now trying to make large sized holovisions possible.

Its pretty great to see the advancement in this technology. Thanks for sharing this video. It would be great to see this technology as a regular mode of advertisment in the future.

I think you're right, Pubudu. Some of the most interesting designs of these products likely will come from the minds of children. The future generation of engineers will certainly have a head start over previous ones with all the technology available to them already.

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10.

NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
