25 Stretched Innovations

From Elongated Ferraris to Bike-Friendly Pants

— July 28, 2009 — Autos
Don't be confused by simple wordplay; anything can be stretched. This cluster is meant to accentuate things purposely stretched, generally stretchy, fake stretched and designed to look stretched.

The wide array of stretched innovations spreads from limousines, to naked yoga and all the way to elastic business cards or Santa with spacers. I hope this cluster isn't a stretch (Ha:I feel it can only be assumed that it will be).

Implications - Stretchable designs find the perfect mix of quirky style and practicality. Through being extremely malleable and flexible, products like these stretched innovations appear to be lasting, durable investments according to many consumers. Companies who utilize stretch materials will give off this same aura within their products.
