#13 - PACKAGING GETS SMARTER

MWC 2016: Conversing With Your Smart Bottle

At this week’s edition of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Thinfilm showcased its NFC OpenSense smart sensor technology designed for the packaging industry. Touching your smartphone to a product with a sensor embedded in its paper or plastic package will automatically open a conversation with the manufacturer, providing product information such as the location of the factory where it was sealed. Thus, the sensor protects against refill fraud, counterfeiting and packaging reuse. The company is now working on a new printed ferrite shield that will enable NFC readers to operate even when the label is on a metallic surface. This could find applications in the area of wine and spirits closures.
