WEGMANS CUSTOMER SHOWS OFF 'SMART' CART THAT TRACKS ITEMS, LETS YOU CHECK OUT
A Wegmans shopper documented his experience of using the grocery store chain’s “smart” carts in a viral TikTok.
Julio Carabello (@juliocaraballo_) demonstrated the “clip-on” smart cart attachment.
He shows off the cart’s screen in the video, then transitions to his girlfriend standing in front of shelves, perusing a variety of sauces. “All right so she’s gonna grab some sauce, go ahead, show them,” Julio says.
The tablet screen automatically recognizes the product, displaying a picture of it.
When you’re done shopping, you can pay right on the tablet attached to the smart cart, which he demonstrates. “So then you just hit pay, you just make sure you approve everything that’s on your list, and that’s it,” he explains.
Several viewers wanted to see if there was a way to mess with the cart’s ID system: “Throw 7 things in at the same time and see if it still gets it right…..I’d spend the whole shopping trip trying to trick it.”
