CONCEPT SKETCH
WHAT IF EVERY PRODUCT HAD AN RFID CHIP INTEGRATED INTO THEIR PACKAGING? ITEMS COULD BE SCANNED AND PRICED WITHOUT REMOVAL FROM THE SHOPPER'S BAGS.

RAILS AND ROLLER BAGS
IF THE SHOPPING TROLLEY WAS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR RFID SCANNING WITH SPECIAL BAGS SUPPORTED ON ROLLERS, CASHDESKS COULD BE DESIGNED TO SCAN AND WEIGH EACH BAG WITHOUT REMOVING ANYTHING. THE TROLLEY CONNECTS MAGNETICALLY TO RAILS ON THE CASHDESK SO THAT THE BAGS CAN EASILY ROLL PAST THE RFID SCANNER.
ROLLER BAGS
LARGE, REUSABLE BAGS TAKE UP VERY LITTLE SPACE WHEN EMPTY. AN ARTICULATED STRUCTURE SUPPORTED ON ROLLERS LOCKS OPEN WHEN MOUNTED ONTO THE COMPATIBLE SHOPPING TROLLEY.
STAR BASKETS
A LIGHTWEIGHT SHOPPING BASKET MADE FROM ALUMINIUM AND FABRIC CAN ALSO BE FITTED ONTO THE SHOPPING TROLLEY. THESE ARE FOLDABLE, STACKABLE WHEN FOLDED AND NESTABLE WHEN FULL.
SHOPPING TROLLEY DESIGN
THE SHOPPING TROLLEY IS VERY VERSATILE. IT CAN ALSO BE FITTED WITH A BASKET, IT CAN BE HORIZONTALLY STACKED FOR STORAGE. A LARGE LOADING PLATFORM IS MADE POSSIBLE THANKS TO OMNIDIRECTIONAL WHEELS, WHICH INCREASES OVERALL LOADING CAPACITY.

SUMMARY

The brief was to imagine how the user experience of shopping in a supermarket might evolve in the near future.

For this concept, I focused on the reducing the worst part of supermarket shopping – queuing up to pay.

RFID (radio frequency identification) scanning is starting to be adopted by some retailers, the cost of integrating the RFID technology into the packaging is falling so it should be possible to place objects into your own containers and have every item scanned and priced without the additional operations of removal, manual scanning of bar codes and replacement back into the container. 

So I focused on the user experience of transporting shopping from shelves to the car, this meant re-imagining baskets, bags and trolleys (caddies).
