Though previously focused on solving existing problems, technological advancements allowed for the science trends in 2013 to focus mostly on ways to add interesting things to consumers' daily lives. This includes pieces such as at-home hydroponic planters, fully autonomous quadopters, and even edible utensils.

Perhaps the biggest discovery in science trends in 2013 was the onslaught of creative ways to use 3D-printing technology, which is now much more widely available. Everything from 3D-printed rhinoplasty to printed netted casts could be observed this past year. Most excitingly, perhaps, was the development of 3D-printable food, a scientific development that could remedy important issues across the globe.
