Innovative Inventors (India)
 
They have come up with a product called a “Mind Reading Trendy E-Cart.” This cart as it’s been named, can detect what items are placed in it, match those to a shopping list and even follow shoppers around the store on its own. This Smart Cart uses a Kinect motion-sensor technology synced with a Windows 8 tablet to control its motion, but with one key difference. Instead of having someone actively directing where the device moves, the cart monitors the user and follows them like a lost puppy as they move about the store and pick out their items. The cart can also track the items placed in it by scanning their bar codes, match them to a pre-made shopping list, and give the total cost of all the items in the basket.
