wi-GO Project from Luis de Matos on Vimeo.

The tech community continues to amaze us with their insanely creative hacks of Microsoft’s Kinect hardware.

Hook one of these up with some UPC scanning software and it’s only a matter of time before these little carts become our own personal bargain shoppers!
