60 Strikingly Violent Innovations

From Torture Games to Hitting With Words

— January 29, 2010 — Fashion
The other night I created a cluster on peaceful innovations; however, I sadly know that this cluster on violent innovations will get more views.

So, for all those who do not take peace and sugar in their cup of tea, check out these 63 violent innovations. They will grab your attention, but nothing else… I promise.

From torture games to hitting with words, check out the 63 strikingly violent innovations.

Implications - Consumers are looking towards their products for a shock value. Designs that are unconventional achieve this for shoppers who don't have the time to go out and look for a surprise element. Companies trying to attract more buyers could hone in on this when coming out with new items.
