A company has developed technology allowing your cereal box to communicate with your computer.

Video posted on YouTube shows the technology in action. The box actually lights up to let you know it's connected.

It can then transmit information to your computer or smartphone about nutrition information, expiration dates or how many boxes are left in the pantry.
