Walmart Is Developing A Self-Driving Shopping Cart

Technology is making us fatter and lazier and here's the proof. Unless you are disabled, there is absolutely no need for this. Hell, sometimes the only exercise I get in a day is pushing the cart at the supermarket. When I want to get a bit of extra cardio in, I just return my cart to one of those cart corral thingies instead of leaving it out in the middle of the parking lot. big grin

Walmart is now working on a self-driving shopping cart that customers would be able to hail like an Uber آ– possible through a smartphone app. The retailer filed a patent for a cart that has a motor and video cameras. The best part? It would also be able to return itself from customers’ cars to the store.
