Attention mums and dads! Your grocery shopping time may be cut in half thanks to these new smart carts. Developed by Media Carts using technology provided by Microsoft, these carts are currently being tested in Shop-Rite stores nationwide and are expected to show up at a supermarket near you during the second half of the year.
So what's so great about them? - They recall grocery lists (sent from home) that are automatically arranged in aisle order, provide instant coupons, nutritional values, scan items and also keep a running tab of the bill! They even provide recipes if needed. Best of all there is no waiting at the checkout stand, where the only thing left to do is pay.
The biggest dilemma (problem) for parents will be to figure out what to do with all that extra time they will soon have!
Watch the video to see how the cart is programmed to be so smart.
