Endtimes?: Wireless, Lightup Product Packaging Is Here

The future of product packaging is just around the corner….  you may want to turn around and go back now.

Yep, these cereal boxes light up. They’re using a new branded-technology called eCoupling that provides electricity via induction, which means the shelves have a coil with AC power running through it. The “printed coils” on the boxes allow inventory control and data exchange presumably thanks to a low-power microcontroller.

Using induction technology, which has actually been available to consumers for a year now, these idiots will now be responsible for the forthcoming massive uptick in cereal aisle seizures and the nightmares; we will all suffer.
