Brendan Byrnes: I think that lends itself to the sensory explosion trend. What is this, and how can marketers take advantage of it?

Ann Mack: Our world has gone more virtual and online, but there's still this need for sensory stimulation. Marketers can definitely play into this by utilizing new technology.

Byrnes: It's something we pay more attention to.

Mack: Exactly. It cuts through the clutter.

Byrnes: Interesting. That's actually kind of scary.
