Can you even imagine any reason your motor oil would need to be a connected product? To stretch your thinking a bit more, how about pharmaceuticals?

These are some of the cutting edge examples of how connectivity in packaging and everyday products is making a difference both to the consumer and the cost and production inherent in bringing those products to market.
