The Inductive Intelligence System Heats Packages with Device Chargers

While there are many food and beverage products that are conveniently packaged for consumers to quickly and easily heat up in the microwave, innovative, patent-pending technology from Inductive Intelligence promises to "safely heat packaged foods and beverages roughly as fast as, and far more efficiently than a microwave."

The system is designed to turn everything from paper and plastic to glass and metal packaging into heatable IoT devices. The technology involves using the familiar appliances for wirelessly powering or charging mobile devices or other small electronics, as well as a smartphone app, to create an induction heating system. As a result, the smart packaging-enabled heating technology has the potential to disrupt single-serve packaging by saving consumers a trip to the microwave.
