The industrial designer understood the value of time in todays fast paced world and has tried to make grocery shopping time fun, quick and precise with the help of his design.
Mixing iPhone and grocery shopping has given birth to the very attention grabbing iShop. What looks like a normal cart that decorates the grocery shop has a slot where one can place their iPhone. The designer has made an application that will make good use of the phone apart from listening to music, watching videos and playing games. The handle of this cart has an iPhone slot, which will let you make good use of a shopping assistance application. The product is targeted at different kinds of shoppers like the pro, the wanderer and the run-in. The pro will do an intensive research before entering the shopping area and are seen carrying a list. On the other hand, the wanderer walks around in the store a meaningless way and is not as organized as the-pro. Such a shopper will keep looking for things and may end up doing compulsive buying. The run-in, without a second thought, is an impulsive buyer and picks whatever he/she sees without much thinking. Such a shopper gives the baskets and carts a miss and tries and get out of the store as soon as possible.
Wooyong Lee kept all such shoppers and also the complex layout of grocery stores in mind while designing his product. All the stores have a different floor plan which may lead to difficulty in finding items and in turn lead to wastage of time while searching for products. People hate wasting time while shopping and iShop will make sure you consume time in a sensible manner. The product by Lee is easy to use, durable has no safety issues. The ergonomic design will make shopping fun and keep all tensions at bay. The slot for iPhone will keep the user away from the trouble of carrying the phone in their hand all the while. This makes the design all the more functional and the control buttons further help in navigation when the phone is coupled with them. The navigation buttons are round in shape and function when pushed. They can be controlled with the help of thumbs even while pushing or pulling the cart.
Make a shopping list on your phone and snap it in the shopping cart. Now, run the iShop application and see it perform all the important functions, like locating products, comparing prices and even prepare coupons for you.
