As with any look at the Millennials, one must realize the generation is still in the shaping process. It is clear that technology will continue to evolve and mold generational members as new ideas are sprouting regularly. Major areas that are expected to contribute the most to the shaping of millennials is the way they listen to music, play games and watch television.

We have already seen the increase in cable networks. During the early days of cable television Nickelodeon was alone in the children’s sector and did not air programming after 9:00 in the evening. Now there are multiple networks offering programming geared specifically to infants, toddlers, juniors and teens. This has increased the ability to effectively market to this generation with new character marketing Nickelodeon, Disney, Sprout, Cartoon Network and others develop unique mascots.

Here are some of the inventions that are taking part in shaping this generation.

  • Instant Messaging
  • Translucent concrete
  • Cable television networks
  • Self-cleaning windows
