Getting geeky at the supermarket
23 June, 2008 Leave a comment
We dropped into a different supermarket than normal on the weekend, the New World in Newtown in fact, where I was surprised to see not only large flatscreen LCD TV’s hanging above the isles, but also electronic price tags on everything,
apologies for the fuzzy photo via my cellphone, but you get the idea – cute little LCD screens with prices on them, presumably with little solar panels for power and possibly a light sensor as well(?) No more printed paper prices here!
The large LCD TV’s had music videos playing along with split screen in-store product ads from time to time,
Now if I could only have a remote for the TV and an armchair while the missus did the shopping I’d be set! Better still – stick a mini LCD TV on my trolley and I’ll do the shopping… 😀
