You open the fridge in the morning and you’re out of milk. You start noticing that’s not the only thing missing. Eventually you end up writing down a list of groceries and later in the day if you have time you’ll go pick them up.
Just see this video and tell me we’re not half a step away from that –> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_5-OgTUeCw&feature=related Let’s go over the elements in the video and if they exist already:
Mobile Phone √
Manager’s Tablet √
Digital Price Tags √
Clerk’s PDA √
So what is keeping supermarkets from turning this video into a reality? Perhaps its a matter of organization, budget or even cultural change. Cultural change however, would be the least problem. Everywhere you look there’s some kind of portable technology and people love it. How many other things can be thus changed? May be even as I write this, some big change is already happening.
The future isn’t an illusion anymore. We’re skyrocketing there. And what’s hilarious is that not even the expression “The Sky is the Limit” is suitable in these times.
