While FedEx was first to introduce parcel tracking in 1986, Domino’s is the first restaurant to apply the technology to pizza delivery. The Pizza Tracker combined with Domino’s radically reinventive “tasted like cardboard” campaign, its Pizza Hero iPad app plus its transparency efforts, puts Domino’s at the head of the restaurant innovation class.

The Pizza Tracker is a perfect example of how to creatively leverage the “Control Freak” trend, which is producing a society far more desiring of control over the process, any process. Then there’s Domino’s “Powered by Pizza” campaign, which honors the role of pizza consumption in the innovation process.

Finally in 2015, Domino’s introduced both the first voice-driven mobile ordering app, as well as the ability to order a pizza by tweeting the pizza emoji. But are all these innovations impacting the bottom line? Domino’s sales at U.S. stores open at least a year were up 10.5% in third quarter of 2015, which is nearly triple the 3.8% U.S. pizza category growth rate. We salute you Domino’s.

Digital Banking: A Trend You Can Bank On

First Exoskeleton Suit Receives FDA Clearance

Marlborough, Mass.-based ReWalk Robotics has received clearance from Food and Drug Administration for the company’s ReStore soft exo-suit system designed for U.S. rehabilitation centers. ReStore is the only soft exo-suit with FDA clearance, and is intended for use in the treatment of stroke survivors with mobility challenges. The cost for ReStore will hover around the $100,000 mark, putting it out of reach for most patients but not rehab facilities. The technology should improve and lower costs. The global stroke management market is forecast to reach $37 billion by 2023, according to Allied Market Research.

Delivery Drones

In April, Alphabet’s Wing became the first drone delivery company to gain Federal Aviation Administration approval to make commercial U.S. deliveries. Just five years ago, 63% of Americans thought it would be a “change for the worse” if commercial drones were given permission to fly through most U.S. airspace. But then again, you can’t have consumers assess future technologies because they have little understanding of its inherent potential. That is underscored by Morgan Stanley’s prediction that autonomous aircraft could become a $1.5 trillion industry by 2040. Meanwhile, Amazon has unveiled the latest iteration of its Prime Air delivery drone. Video below in our innovation video gallery.
