There are many industries where it's critical to track the expiration date of a product, commodity, or process. The most common method is to have expiration dates or sell-by dates printed on items like perishables, medications or baby food. In many cases instead of having dates printed on them it is up to the user to track the deadlines with manual inspection and written logs. But these methods are often cumbersome, time and labor consuming, and not always accurate.
In the consumer arena where people must juggle work, family and day to day tasks, it's important to be able to keep track of a large multitude of deadlines including bill payments, aging food products, automobile tire rotations & oil changes, car maintenance and registration, medical and dental appointments, vacations, meetings or sports activities, etc. for all family members. Most people currently use calendars and electronic planners that help but which, due to limited time constraints, don't always get updated and used consistently. So keeping track of deadlines is often a hit and miss process which creates a lot of stress.
Time DotTM Features and Benefits:
The Time DotTM is a simple-to-use disposable device used for tracking deadlines, expiration dates and elapsed time. Time DotTM is a small round item approximately the size of a quarter [though it can also be larger or smaller, as well as manufactured as a rectangle] which is activated by the user and sticks to most surfaces. Once activated, it utilizes an electro-chemical process to change color and signal the end of the desired elapsed time.
The elapsed time periods can range from minutes and hours, to days or months. The common duration periods can be made in 30, 60, and 90 day durations, with shorter or longer timeframes easily customized for clients with specialized needs. Once used, they are disposable.
"Smart" Time DotTM version: Additionally, there are many stages in the food industry during the processing, transportation, retail shelving, etc. where spoilage can occur due to temperature changes. A special "smart" version can be made for items like refrigerated foods, which reacts to temperature increases by automatically shortening the expiration date. If for example the temperature increases, normal shelf-life of a refrigerated item shortens although the printed sell-by date does not change. How many people have purchased milk products within the printed sell-by date only to find it to be spoiled when opened?
The uses for Time DotTM are wide in scope including the following:
Medical facilities, food manufacturers, retailers and warehouses, consumers.
