ImpacX, the innovative Internet of Packaging (IoP) company, has partnered with Gatorade, the global sports fuel brand. The result: Gatorade Smart Gx bottles powered by impacX’s science and technology.
The Internet of Packaging company that provides a full end-to-end connected experience for water, vitamins, supplements and CPG brands through an Internet of Things (IoT) smart packaging platform, announced a partnership with global sports fuel brand Gatorade. The result: Gatorade Smart Gx bottles powered by impacX’s science and technology.
At the heart of this partnership is the “connected experience” – a new and personal way for Gatorade Smart Gx bottle consumers to interact with the physical product. impacX’s patented smart cap technology transforms reusable bottles into a smart, digital device that, tracks and collects hydration data for the user while calculating beverage intake based on the user’s profile and sport activity when paired with the accompanying Gx app. This innovation encourages hydration with intelligent reminders that are triggered by sensors located within the bottle’s cap that detect the level of liquid inside the bottle.
“We’re excited to partner with an international brand such as Gatorade,” said Yoav Hoshen, co-founder and senior vice president of impacX. “At impacX, we empower consumers through our digital and personalized solutions to help them track their own hydration and wellness needs. We strive to be leaders of the smart hydration space and are dedicated to technology that brings a robust and well-rounded product for our customers and partners.”
The smart bottle technology benefits both customers and the brands. Customers gain insights from a user-friendly mobile app that coaches them to achieve their hydration and wellness goals once they have entered personal information catered to their current fitness and health journeys. The technology inside the users’ Smart Gx bottle also shows a progress gauge that reminds and coaches them when they should take another sip, when their bottle is empty, how many more ounces they need to consume, and more. Meanwhile, brands receive access to customer and usage insights using impacX’s unique smart hydration platform.
“We have been searching for an innovative technology company to partner with that can deliver personalized daily hydration recommendations and change the way athletes hydrate and fuel,” said Drew Palin, senior director of innovation at Gatorade. “impacX has created a smart packaging technology that precisely meets our needs. This new partnership represents the future of packaging and has the potential to improve athlete engagement.”
The Gatorade Smart Gx bottle powered by impacX is currently available in black and has the option for personalization. It comes in a kit including the bottle, a four pack of Gx pods, two Gx Sweat Patches, and is available now for $69.99 USD on Gatorade.com.
impacX was founded in 2015 and has two main product lines: Water.io – the world leading smart hydration platform, and Vitamins.io – an innovation platform for vitamins and supplements for tracking, reminding, and re-ordering.
ImpacX(TASE: IMPC.TA) is a smart packaging company that delivers a connected experience for brands through innovative technology. Its end-to-end Internet of Packaging platform uses a unique combination of sensors, algorithms, cloud services and mobile apps to provide a complete personalized experience for consumers as well as products and brands.

Reebok and sports card manufacturer Panini America have announced a rare collaboration highlighting cultural icons Allen Iverson and the coveted “Prizm” brand. Releasing globally November 4 alongside a retro-inspired apparel capsule ($40-$60), the collection is championed by three Prizm parallel iterations of A.I.’s historic Question basketball shoe.
Introduced in 2012, Panini America’s Prizm sports card brand – with its high-gloss Optichrome designs, desirable rookies, and coveted short-print parallels – has quickly become one of the most sought-after and defining products in modern sports cards culture. Then there’s Allen Iverson, an explosive six-foot guard out of Hampton, V.A. who as a rookie in 1996 would splash onto the scene and – wearing his signature Reebok Question – go on to redefine the game of basketball and its many subcultures. In Reebok x Panini America, these two irrepressible forces collide.
“This has been a long time coming,” commented Jason Howarth, VP of Marketing at Panini America. “The Prizm brand has helped launch sports trading cards into the global mainstream. It reaches beyond the hobby, just like Iverson reaches beyond basketball. To be able to authentically bring together two iconic brands who each have such a deep connection to sports, collectibles, and culture – we think this one will be fun for everyone who engages with it.”
Across product, Prizm fans will appreciate special design hits like shrink-wrap-inspired all-over logo branding, embroidered Iverson autographs, light-reactive parallel treatments, classic Panini yellow-tag branding, Rookie Shoe badge hang tags, and more, all across three unique parallels:
Question Mid Tiger Prizm (HQ1097/$170, HQ1103/$110): Widely available in adult and youth sizing, this wearable colorway nods Iverson’s tenacity, taking cues from Panini America’s admired Tiger Prizm parallel with overlays across a white leather upper.
Question Low Rookie Signature Prizm (HQ1099/$140): Available in more-limited quantities, this design puts a glossy royal blue Prizm spin on the low-cut Question, paying homage to Iverson’s rookie team colors.
Question Mid Black Pulsar Prizm (HQ4135/$170): Rare in distribution, this Question Mid offers a narrative on the flashing lights surrounding A.I. via Panini America’s hyper-rare Black Pulsar Prizm treatment on the upper alongside smooth suede overlays.
Select pairs purchased from Reebok.com and local retailers will come with a pack of limited-edition Panini America x Reebok Iverson trading cards. Each card features beautiful imagery of A.I. from the early 2000’s captured by legendary photographer Gary Land with designs drawing inspiration from Prizm, Question, and other Reebok Iverson product lines. From these packs, consumers will have the opportunity to “pull” special Prizm parallel cards, short-printed Iverson on-card autographed cards, Iverson-worn patches, and more. (Comprehensive checklist available upon request.)
In late September, Reebok and Panini America “teased” the collaboration with a rare friends-and-family Blue Dazzle Prizm flip (HQ4562) on Iverson’s historic blue and gold Denver Nuggets player-edition Question from 2007. Only 100 were made, each of which shipped with an exclusive Panini x Reebok MileHigh gold-vinyl insert card.
The remarkable range represents the pinnacle of Glenfiddich’s signature distillery style, with each of the three liquids maturing over decades to develop richness and depth of flavor that is rarely encountered. Since the 1960s, just three Glenfiddich Malt Masters have been at the helm, overseeing and nurturing the patient development of these precious casks through various climatic conditions.
Each expression, alongside artistically developed outer packaging, encapsulates the maverick spirit known to the brand and celebrates moments of time relative to their production. The rarest within the Time Re:Imagined Collection, the 50-Year-Old, portrays Simultaneous Time, exploring theparallel and complex conditions that have influenced the liquid. Glenfiddich’s 40-Year-Old represents Cumulative Time, drawing attention to the layers of accumulated flavor, made possible via the remnant vatting process, first pioneered by the brand. Completing the Collection is the 30-Year-Old, embodying Suspended Time – representing the moment when the Malt Master suspends the development of the whisky, showcasing the purest expression of the distiller’s character.
“In whisky production, we often talk about the role of Malt Masters, and it is our responsibility to find the delicate balance between the taste of the whisky and the intensity of the oak cask,” says Brian Kinsman, Malt Master, Glenfiddich. “But we don’t always acknowledge how each cask, each bottle, is absolutely unique because of the time it has spent maturing. Both nature and time play huge roles in making whisky taste like it does, and Glenfiddich’s Time Re:Imaginedpays homage to this process and the exquisite liquid both time helps to create.”
Lorne Cousin, U.S. National Ambassador, Glenfiddich, said: “Glenfiddich was founded on groundbreaking and innovative principles in 1887 and the independent spirit of the brand shines through in these liquids.”Allan Roth, U.S. Ambassador, Glenfiddich, added: “The quality of the collection not only evokes the time and care gone into nurturing these expressions to create incredible flavor, but is also a tribute to the events that have helped shape the taste of each cask over time.”
Kevin Canchola, U.S. Ambassador, Glenfiddich, shared: “The extremely rare 50-Year-Old is a beautiful testament to the Glenfiddich Malt Masters’ work over five decades.” “It is an extraordinarily rare and precious liquid, which delivers a superb balance of oak tannin and lingering sweetness,” David Allardice, U.S. Ambassador, Glenfiddich, concluded.
To create the complex flavor of the rarest in the collection – the Glenfiddich 50-Year- Old – whiskies from three different American Oak refill casks, all matured in the same warehouse, were married together and finished in an American Oak refill cask for two years. There are only 220 decanters of this astounding expression, making it an extremely precious and sought-after collectors’ item.
The Time Re: Imagined Collection is now available in limited quantities in the U.S. at suggested retail prices of $1,299, $4,600 , and $50,000 for the Glenfiddich 30-Year-Old, 40-Year-Old, and 50-Year-Old, respectively.
Time Re:Imagined Product Details (Tasting Notes + Packaging Information)
Glenfiddich 30-Year-Old (Aged 30 Years – 43% ABV)
Color: Rich bronze
Nose: An exquisitely structured balance of hearty oak married with sweet, subtle sherry notes
Taste: Deep, woody flavors interlaced with delicate floral accents, in a complex combination
Finish: Warm, honeyed and exceptionally long-lasting
Suspended Time: The 30-Year-Old depicts the moment when Brian Kinsman, Glenfiddich’s Malt Master, suspends the whisky’s maturation to bottle it, capturing the whisky at the precise moment in time, a perfect expression, preserved for all eternity.
Packaging: The outer packaging design showcases moving ribbons, each one frozen to form elegant cut-out windows, revealing the regal decanter inside. With the moment of maturation captured in all its splendor, the dynamic lines and complex structure create an illusion that the bottle is suspended effortlessly, in mid-air, suspended in time.
SRP: $1,299.00Glenfiddich 40-Year-Old (Aged 40 Years – 44.6% ABV)
Color: Dark mahogany
Nose: A deeply layered expression of dried fruits, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and ripe black cherries – completed with subtle waves of gentle wood smoke, polished leather and cloves
Taste: A luxuriously full and silky smooth taste, with memories of past releases in every nuanced note; Evolving from deep dried fruit notes to rich fruitcake, dates, raisins and stewed apples, before giving way to dry oaky notes, with subtle hints of bitter chocolate and peat
Finish: Complex, memorable, and exquisitely long-lasting
Cumulative Time: The 40-Year-Old is a bold, maverick representation of remnant vatting – a pioneering process, only used by Glenfiddich’s Distillery, where the remnants of the previous batch are carried over and married with the casks selected for each subsequent release.
Packaging: The outer packaging design brings layers of transforming flavors to life with a bold and maverick take on a geological metamorphosis. The decanter is housed in a stunning sculptural container and stopper made from jesmonite – a material with individual characteristics that render every piece completely unique. The vessel truly embodies the evolution of one thing becoming another, with dramatic grooves carved into the stone-like material, that expose the intertwining veins flowing through it.
Glenfiddich 50-Year-Old (Aged 50 Years – 43.8% ABV)
Color: Antique gold
Nose: Rich orange peel and clementine meet complex notes of Madeira cake and muscovado sugar; Scents mature over time into the dewy petrichor of a Dufftown morning, mingling with flowering geranium
Taste: A lingering sweetness softens into deep, silky smooth oak tannin and sun-dried vanilla
Finish: Oaky, sweet and incredibly long lasting
Simultaneous Time: The 50-Year-Old explores complex conditions that have influenced the whisky, including air pressure, temperature and humidity, as the nature of maturation changes alongside these conditions. Hot summers speed up the maturation process and cold winters slow it down – dramatically affecting the outcome of the liquid and lending itself to the whisky’s unique taste.
Packaging: The outer casing is an artistic representation of the climatic data that created this extraordinary whisky. Manuel Jiménez García, a computational architect, decrypted the meteorological data into an algorithm, and generated a physical design language to build the structure’s bespoke form – bringing life to every second of every day, of every month of those 50 years.
Founded in Dufftown, Scotland by innovator William Grant, Glenfiddich first ran from the stills on Christmas Day, 1887. Adopting revolutionary methods and practices Grant’s maverick attitude to whisky production saw Glenfiddich excel for over a hundred and thirty years, becoming the first single malt whisky to be promoted outside of Scotland, and ultimately, the best-selling and most awarded single malt whisky in the world*. While Glenfiddich is now sold in over 180 countries across the world, the brand is one of the few single malt distilleries to remain entirely family-owned and is still produced in the same distillery which William Grant and his children hand-built.

Polestar Cars Finds Majority of US Drivers Don’t Purchase Electric Vehicles for Environmental Reasons
New survey reveals 55% US drivers purchase an electric car for reasons other than environmental benefits
Almost half of respondents are open to buying an electric car from a new brand, many more than with a gasoline powered vehicle
Generational differences affect rationale for electric car purchase
Polestar, the Swedish premium electric performance car brand, has conducted research that has found that 55 percent of US drivers purchase electric cars for reasons other than environmental benefits. In-vehicle technology, seamless connectivity and infotainment system offerings have been named as the most important decisions for consumers switching to an electric car from an internal-combustion vehicle.
“The idea of luxury being defined by what’s ‘under the hood’ has been replaced in the electric era with the prioritization of seamless connectivity, integration into existing digital ecosystems, and good UX design,” said Gregor Hembrough, Head of Polestar North America. “People are switching to electric cars for more than just environmental reasons, and Polestar’s focus on in-vehicle technology means they can have everything they want in an environmentally friendly package.”
Polestar 2 was the first vehicle to market with the revolutionary Google-developed infotainment system. The system features Google built-in, including industry-leading voice control via Google Assistant. This enables control of functions using natural voice commands, including navigation through Google Maps, the climate system, music, phone and more.
Brand image also makes a difference to consumers based on age demographics. Fifty-seven percent of millennials (ages 25 to 40) are confident in new electric car brands compared to only 28 percent of Baby Boomers (ages 57 to 75). Nearly half (46 percent) of all respondents are more open to new brands and start-ups such as Polestar when it comes to purchasing an electric car.
Despite eco-consciousness not necessarily being a driving factor for over half of respondents, younger drivers are also much more concerned with appearing environmentally conscious compared to their older counterparts. For Gen Z respondents (ages 18-24), image is a big factor, with 12 percent saying it would be the most important consideration when choosing an electric car compared to an internal-combustion vehicle. That is twice as many as Millennials (ages 25-41), and more than three times as many as Baby Boomers ages (57-74).
To obtain this data, Polestar commissioned a third-party survey, fielded earlier this year with more than 5,000 electric and internal combustion drivers across all 50 US states. The survey questioned drivers on the state of electric car acceptance, charging infrastructure, and the perception of electric car brands when purchasing a vehicle.

“Rolls-Royce Ghost remains one of the most popular members of our family. No name has been more successful for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars over the past century and especially over the past 20 years marking the Goodwood era. It’s fascinating to share how Rolls-Royce has evolved over the past century while at the same time, remaining true to its promise as the premier luxury brand in the world.” — Martin Fritches, President Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Americas
Rolls-Royce Ghost has been the most successful name for the world’s leading luxury brand for the past century. Ghost has set luxury and motoring standards since Sir Henry Royce and Charles Rolls revealed Silver Ghost to the world in 1908. This week, as part of the 2022 Annual Meet of Rolls-Royce Owners Club, the brand spans more than 100 years of Ghost with an exclusive meeting of two special Silver Ghost and two spectacular 2022 Rolls-Royce Ghost commissions. The family gathering comes 114 years since the debut of Silver Ghost in 1907.
Thevintage Silver Ghosts were introduced to the pair of 2022 Rolls-Royce commissions as Rolls-Royce motor car owners and lovers convened in San Diego for the 2022 Rolls-Royce Owners Club annual gathering. This annual meet features some of the finest examples Rolls-Royce historic commissions from throughout North America. With more than 70 percent of all motor cars created still gracing the world’s roads today,Rolls-Royce Motor Cars commitment to excellence of quality and luxury is borne out in each unique Bespoke creation.
The vintage beauties were greeted by a 2022 Rolls-Royce Ghost, the execution of the brand’s concept of ‘post-opulence’ first seen in 2021. Today’s Ghost is a more restrained and refined. Constructed on the brand’s dedicated ‘Architecture of Luxury,’ Ghost has refined the Rolls-Royce driving experience to perfection.

Black Badge Ghost joined the reunion as the darker, edgier alter ego for the family. The distinct model features both design and engineering enhancements that make it the choice for a more aggressive Rolls-Royce collector. With darkened chrome including the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy, Black Badge highlights the passion for nightlife. Black Badge Ghost doesn’t just bring a darker beauty, engineering enhancements give it more brawn. Goodwood engineers have tuned the 6.75-liter twin-turbo V-12 to deliver more torque and horsepower than the ‘post-opulent’ Ghost and the acclaimed ‘Architecture of Luxury’ has been engineered to be more aggressive.
