MarkitCart shopping trolley

As fun as 'smart' shopping trolleys, like the U-Scan Shopper, might be to use, they hardly solve one of the fundamental problems of supermarket trolleys - they never go where you want them to.

Shoppers are likely to welcome the new MarkitCart. Its makers claim that it is more user-friendly, convenient and safe to use than the conventional shopping trolley. With a low centre of gravity, a lightweight body (made of recyclable, shock-absorbent plastics) and large fixed rear wheels, it is supposedly easier to steer. It's also less likely to run away from you and cause accidents; in addition to a conventional travelator brake and a manual foot brake, a built-in braking mechanism automatically kicks in when the trolley travels at 6km per hour. Some thought has been given to the basket too: it holds more than the conventional trolley, has a child seat that holds two, and there's a separate section for fragile items.
