DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: Why hasn’t the standard shopping cart been modified much since its arrival early in the twentieth century? Do you still see a tech-infused, self-steering future for grocery shopping carts?

Interactive Edge’s CEO, Zel Bianco comments, featured on RetailWire’s Braintrust:

I’d be very happy to get a cart that actually rolls smoothly instead of one wheel being bent or that has a string that is clogging up the wheels. That would be a major improvement and provide a better shopping experience. Technology is not always the answer, sometimes the answer is plain old common sense.

What will it take to build a better shopping cart?
