Pop! Technology: Who’s taking care of your food?

If you are planning on acquiring a very expensive bottle of wine, wouldn’t you want to know what temperature the bottle was stored at? Pop! Technology is a company with an interesting product. It uses RFID to record variations of temperature of a product as it makes its way through the distribution maze.

The really nice part is that the temperature history is actually recorded on a thermally sensitive bar code and can be read by UPC scanners, say, the ones at grocery stores. The implications for technology like this can be huge in the areas of food, beverage and pharmaceutical storage.
