NEWS: WorldStar for the Cap that Talks to Your Customer


Kisico, based in Germany, has scooped a WorldStar for its innovative cap, which features a NFC-Chip that is fully integrated in the cap, so is tamper-free and invisible from the outside, it claims.

The NFCap permits contactless communication with every NFC-enabled smartphone. NFC technology can be integrated into most of the KISICO standard products so no further costs for new injection moulding tools or tool adjustments arise, says the company.

Since the chip is not visible from the outside, the caps retain their design. The chip never comes in contact with the bottle contents, representing an additional advantage - especially for users in the food, chemical or pharmaceutical industries.

A wide array of information can be stored on the chip. Relevant applications can be used to verify the authenticity of the product. In addition, consumers can use this communication opportunity between product cap and smartphone to access information stored on the chip such as links to websites, product specifications or other specifically developed apps.
