In this paper we present a new way of emotional interaction with products. Based on the rapid prototyping Microsoft Gadgeteer platform, we concretized our vision of an on-product app by implementing an anthropomorphic intelligent milk carton. The purpose of this realization is to give customers a better view of a product’s life-cycle. This realization also demonstrates that the frontier between pure mobile applications development and the creation of tangible objects is very thin and opens new way to integrate the Internet of Things over an anthropomorphic user interface, thus leading to a new product to human interaction form.
