Spin

The supermarket of tomorrow is yours today!

For a geek, sometimes I'm awfully nervous about new stuff.

The future's great, and I'd love to have a robot that vacuums for me and then proceeds to do my laundry.

But some futuristic cars (the Honda Insight, the Element) just don't work for me. And, now that you have those images, and maybe Total Recall and Minority Report all filling your head, I'll tell you that my grocery store has new shopping carts.

Man, they're just the thing if you want to buy some Soylent Green and a new alluvial dampener for your T-35 Skyhopper.

I'd get some photos, but I'm guessing that your grocery store also has these things and it just isn't a big deal to anybody else.
