From Hand Grenade Colognes to Bursting Bike Locks

These alarming explosive innovations highlight the ways in which the shock factor can up the ante for particular products.

Often integrated into photo shoots as well as less expected goods, including cologne, the 'bursting' trend is eye-catching and effective. While manufactured goods tend to focus around grenades and artillery shaped products, art that incorporates explosions typically takes the idea in a more literal direction. From balloon bursting editorials to exploding alarm clocks, people seem to be endlessly on edge and eager to pick up their own volatile goods.

Destined to stick around as long as consumers are intrigued by things that go "boom," this is an innovation that isn't going anywhere. Destined to only become more suspenseful and more eye-catching, this is a movement that continues to blow up.
