Top 75 Youth Innovations in October

From 3D Social Media Selfies to Pizza-Embedded Skateboards

— October 12, 2019 — Life-Stages
Younger demographics typically depict the future of a variety of industries, and this list of October 2019 youth innovations highlights the unique ways that businesses are responding to the needs and demands of younger Millennials and Generation Z.

As always, social media is being leveraged by businesses to engage with these demographics. Prime examples from this list include Snapchat's new feature, which is allowing consumers to take 3D selfies. On a similar note, Facebook users can now share 15 seconds of a Spotify song on their pages, helping to bring more personality to one's online presence.

In addition to social media, technology is also continuously leveraged to appeal to younger people. For example, the VTech Kidi Star Dance Toy conveniently pairs with a motion-activated band, seamlessly integrated technology with physical activity.
