The inclusion of inessential innovations is an adaptation to the consumption-focused lifestyles that people have grown accustomed to–and makes the idea of Mars colonization more palatable for the average person.
Workshop Question - How can your brand take one of its less engaging business processes, products or services, and alter or re-position it to make it more palatable?
