Packaging Innovation

Fulton Innovation demonstrated wireless charging technology in Las Vegas at CES. The packaging uses induction power to create, among lots of other things, some of the most amazing cereal boxes, illuminating in stages to create an eye-catching effect. The technology can also be used to power toys and other items to give a battery-free demonstration. The company also had a pack of Energiser batteries that were being charged on its magical induction shelf, ready for you to buy and use straight away. As if this wasn’t enough, the company also had a can of soup which had a heating coil built in to the packaging. Place this on its specially designed kitchen surface and the soup will cook in the pack, as per the manufacturer’s instructions. No more microwave explosions, just hot, perfectly warmed soup.

Packaging and POP Display

Creating a Seamless Connection On-Shelf With Packaging and POP Display Hasbro is making a splash in the toy world with its newest game (Cuponk) geared towards both kids and adults. The object of Cuponk is to sink your ball into cups which light up with crazy sounds of victory. Several themed cups, each with their own unique sounds, enable players to create trick shots that are provided on the playing cards included with each purchase. Packaging and Display Unite – the well thought out combination of both elements is highlighted by fusing great marketing and merchandising in-store. The Cuponk launch is a wonderful example of how important it is to give equal, upfront thought to both packaging and display. Often times, this process is disconnected by creative logistics so it’s very refreshing to come across such a successful and shining example. Read more about it on The Point of Purchase Network!

Windows Art

This is a nice work of art. This is not an anti Windows post at all. It’s about the idea to put 2D into 3D. Something we are also into 😉 Via
