Pragmatic and Talkin' Things announce their strategic partnership

Talking' Things will embed Pragmatic’s flexible integrated circuits into its smart packaging solution to bring consumer engagement and brand protection to trillions of products


9 Nov 2017 | Editor

Pragmatic and Talkin' Things are pleased to announce a strategic relationship that aims to drive the mass market adoption of smart packaging.

Talkin' Things will embed Pragmatic's flexible integrated circuits (FlexICs) into packaging solutions that will be significantly lower cost than comparable silicon based options, opening up new mass market segments previously inaccessible. In addition, as Pragmatic's new RFID/NFC FlexICs are thinner than a human hair and flexible, they will be imperceptible even in flexible packaging, which is one of the fastest growing packaging format in the home, cosmetic and food/beverage consumer packaged goods (CPGs) industries.

"We are looking forward to working closely with Pragmatic."


"Pragmatic is bringing flexible electronics to market at the price level previously unavailable for smart packaging technologies. Thanks to this Talkin' Things will be able to drive interactivity into a broader range of high volume consumer goods than ever before."


Marcin Pilarz, CEO of Talkin' Things

"We are very pleased that Talkin' Things, a global smart packaging solutions provider has chosen to use our unique FlexICs."


"With its relationships with leading brand owners and packaging companies, Talkin' Things is ideally positioned to take solutions based on our technology to the mass market."


Scott White, CEO of Pragmatic
