Personalized products

Users consume and produce information simultaneously on web pages such as Facebook and YouTube. So-called crowdtesting is a special form of crowdsourcing in which companies can use the manpower and knowledge of the crowd to test the user-friendliness of products and where applicable, refine them. Active participation in the creation of a product turns consumers into prosumers. Meanwhile, existing products can be adapted to meet prosumer wishes, for example individual perfumes or chocolates. The personalization of a product also characterizes the so-called prosumer product. The bridge camera is designed for use by semi-professionals.
