well we would see in the market future and i think reallly soon

Fulton Innovation -- don't worry, we hadn't heard of them either -- is out here in Vegas demonstrating wireless charging tech that has blown our tiny, gambling-addled minds. Its fabulous packaging uses induction power to create, among lots of other things, some of the most amazing cereal boxes we've ever seen, which can illuminate in stages to create an eye-catching effect.

Aaagh! One more over-the-top, wasteful advertising gimmick and I swear I am moving to the most remote, rural place on this Earth!

Yet another waste of the Earths precious resources in the name of profit for the greedy multinationals.
Mind you as a kid I remember getting a plastic submarine in the rice crispies( I think) which you filled with self raising flour.
When you put it in a bowl of water the CO2 produced raised the little sub to the surface.
Kept me amused for hours, it did! ;D
Anyone else remember that one, or am I just showing my advanced age?

I truly  just have question "how about the foods inside the box who have been induced with that kind energy? how save they are after great time induce by the energy?"

Well, I would think you can be sure they'll be sterile.
Can't do any harm I don't think, should be safe.

Haha, I will share in the "advanced age"...I had & enjoyed those subs immensely!  I think we just used some sodium bicarbonate in the subs.
Yes, but what a waste of resources :bigtears:
I will refuse to buy any item that is overpackaged.
Can't the techies think of a better use for this technology?

Yes, bicarb, that's right. or I think baking powder.
SR flour did the trick but was a bit messy.
The techies can probably think of 1001 better uses, but will they pay.
Sadly its all about money.
