One day in the near future, you'll be able to throw on your pajamas, head to Meijer or Walmart, and be nagged, nitpicked, and chastised by your talking grocery cart.

No pushing:  New 'stalker' technology will enable the cart to follow you, freeing you to use both hands for texting. We can only hope it comes with a 'child emulation' setting, which will allow its sensors to work sporadically, in order to make it hit your ankles at least twice in each aisle.

Microsoft showed off the technology which uses its 'Kinect' sensor for Windows technology, and says this prototype is in the very early stages of development.

A grocery cart that announces what you're buying as you stock up on liquor, feminine hygiene products, and condoms! Now we're talkin'!
