From Robotic Fast Food Eateries to Body-Positive Hairy Jewelry

 - Feb 18, 2019
These 2019 unique innovations range from robotic fast food eateries to body positive, hairy jewelry collections. While San Francisco-based restaurant 'Creator' replaces human staff with robot cooks who create artisanal burgers for $6 a piece, Naama Agassi's hair-crafted accessory range aims to empower women. The collection aims to remove the common stigma surrounding female body hair and the shame that is often synonymous with it.

A standout in the experiential retail realm is Luxury Escapism's 'Oddly Satisfying Spa.' Described as "an immersive performance in a digital-era day spa," the sensory self-care space combines traditional services with interactive treatments that are powered by virtual reality. The space is reflective of consumers' growing love for AR and VR technology and takes classic beauty and relaxation rituals to new heights.

Other 2019 unique innovations include forward-thinking food examples like DagWoods' Instagram-friendly Glitter Pizza menu, NomNom Chocolate's 15-variety product range which includes an 'Old Book' flavor, and Ducks Eatery's vegan-friendly 'Watermelon Ham' which mimics the traditional holiday meat item.
