QR codes, RFID tags, GPS tracking, temperature and motion sensors… More and more packaging incorporates technology that collects, transmits, or communicates with consumers, retailers, and manufacturers. To truly capitalize on these opportunities, brands need to understand the difference between bolting a bit of technology to a box and designing intelligent packaging that thrives in an information-rich ecosystem.
