NFC is good for more than figuring out how much liquor you have.
NFC World: â€œThe two companies [ThinfilmÂ andÂ Jones Packaging] are collaborating to integrate Thinfilmâ€™s NFC OpenSense technology into paperboard pharma packaging and establish key manufacturing processes for production on Jonesâ€™ high speed lines.â€ In addition â€œthe workâ€¦will also include the integration of ferrite shield labels with the NFC OpenSense tags. This will enable NFC to function on metalized packaging such as blisters â€¦â€
Pretty cool stuff. By using NFC in the packaging, the simple tap of an NFC-enabled phone will allow you to authenticate the product, as well as track individual items. Would be neat to tie this into IV labels somehow.
