This time around, Cathi Bond looks at the rise of high-end automated kiosks for selling a wide range of products (meat, for instance!).

This time, trendspotters, Cathi Bond talks about one of the more surprising trends she's seen: cocoons. See them here, here, and here. (Via Gizmag). Any theories as to why cocoons, why now?

Meanwhile, Nora Young talks about CustomMade, a service that brings craftspeople and buyers together in a marketplace for customized manufacture (via Core77)Nora also tells the story of Bemz, a site that makes new covers of just about all the chairs and sofas IKEA has made. With all this disintermediated customization going on, are major retailers going to need to be a lot more flexible? UPDATE: Bemz apparently delivers internationally, not just in North America.
In today's podcast for trendwatchers, Nora Young talks about Indochino, a service that provides custom-made suits by getting the customer to do their own measurements. Cathi Bond and Nora think it furthers the trend toward mass customization, and using the internet to create personalized experiences for lower prices. It continues a trend they've talked about before, in products such as Styku. Meanwhile, Cathi Bond discusses this PSFK interview with Digital Art Director Dhani Sutanto, who has created the Oyster Ring - wearable tech that he can use to access the London Tube. Cathi and Nora discuss whether the app-loaded cell phone has taken the wind out of the sails of wearable tech, or if there will be new life in good looking wearable gear. UPDATE: Bit of a problem with the podcast for a day. Should be fine now. Thanks Encaffeinated ONE
