From Street-Legal Pirate Ships to Pirated DVD Finding Dogs

— July 27, 2010 — Fashion
Today being a pirate can take on a different meanings than some old seaman who wears a patch over his eye and has a parrot on his shoulder. This cluster of modernized pirate innovations runs the spectrum from traditional pirate influences to a new type of "pirate" (a.k.a an illegal downloaders). From street-legal prate ships to pirated DVD finding dogs, there are tons of modernized pirate innovations.

Implications - With so many stresses mounting every day in modern society, consumers desire a way to escape. Fantastical elements in products provide a quick way to forget responsibilities. Developing more items that incorporate an otherworldly aspect could help a company attract more customers.
