A Shopping Cart That Will Follow You

5 years ago

Imagine going shopping and not have to worry about pushing a cart around but instead it will follow your every move. Sounds cool, right?! Its close to happening.
This automated shopping cart is the creation of the company Chaotic Moon and it was developed for Whole Foods Market, using a screen that is also connected to their server I believe.
What the cart does is follow you around while you shop and put things inside the cart using the Kinect technology to track your moves. So, you go from each section at the shop and the cart will go behind you so you can just pick something from the shelve and put it directly in the cart. You will also be able to create a shopping list to help you shop and make sure you dont forget anything.

<strong>What do you think of this automated shopping cart? Would you like to have a shopping cart following you around?</strong>I have to say the idea looks pretty cool but the cart still doesnt work properly but its still an early version and they will probably improve that. What im also picturing is that the store will have a lot of carts running into each other lol
