Short info

From the gadget warehouse, a shopping cart with brains: the Concierge Shopping Cart.

Detailed information

Dick saw this at CES and thinks it might be one for the Gadget Warehouse one day.  It's a touch-screen computer attached to a shopping card to assist your shopping, including automatic checkout.  Dick's experience with other automatic checkout, such as at Home Depot, is it doesn't work.  Also there is a worry about annoying advertising.  Leo has shown this on Call For Help.

Piggly Wiggly

Dick and Leo mentioned Piggly Wiggly in Episode 224 and said it's found mainly in the West.  Kevin wrote in to correct them.  Piggly Wiggly is mostly found in the East and Southeast of the US.
