Walmart Patents Self-Driving Shopping Carts...No, I'm serious!
Because being lazy is sooooo millenial!! Haha...Next time you head over to a Super Walmart feel free to text and social media all you want because in the near future those carts will drive solo! Yeah mija. While your little niños are trying to jump like the traviesos you can use your phone to drive their little behinds down the shopping isle.
'A patent application published by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on Sept 8, 2016, and filed by Walmart in March 2016 suggests that the company has at least considered the possibility. The application depicts a Roomba-esque motorized device attached to the underside of a shopping cart. Customers use their smartphone or other mobile device to summon the internet-connected device. From there, the cart is controlled by a centralized computer, and navigates the store using its sensors. The shopping cart will serve as a guide to different items the shopper is looking for throughout the store.'
