P&G Experimenting With Smart Packaging

from the it-knows-when-you-pick-it-up dept

P&G is apparently experimenting with smart packaging that will know the second you pick a product up off the shelf – and if you put it back. It’s not hard to see how this could be done, but the problem is that it’s probably too expensive to do on a bigger scale. However, inventory demands and improving the supply chain are things that are very important to P&G and many retailers. I wonder if P&G will report on any of the results from the tests.
