- You can scan your items as you put them in the cart so it will tell you how much your total is before you get to the check-out line.
- It has a little "GPS" type locator on it so it knows where you are in the store and it will tell you the different sales going on in that aisle.
- It keeps a grocery list on there for you- before you go to the store, you can get online and put your grocery list on some website, and when you get to the store and get your shopping cart, you can put in some username/password and it will pull up your grocery list AND as you scan your items it checks them off the list for you. GOOD for me since I usually either (a) forget to bring my list or (b) get WAY more items than I was planning on because I don't really look at my list.
The big reason for them doing this, of course, is advertising- so you'll get to see tons of advertisements, which we all LOVE. But I don't know- it seems like a pretty good idea. Check out their website here: http://www.mediacart.com/
How will this affect the homeless people and thier shopping carts?...
