Concierge - The Concierge interactive touch screen grocery carts are fascinating because of how they will shift paradigms in the retail environment. They will augment the users shopping experience by delivering individually tailored content and shopping tools without being obtrusive, and eventually allow self-checkout with just the cart.

Concierge supporting products - __Responsibilities__

Concept, prototypes, and final design for both supporting products to the Concierge unit: Handle End Caps to mount the concierge to varied shopping carts, and a mobile Battery Charging Station.
End Caps - Attractive and extremely robust plastic end caps that integrate the Concierge unit with various shopping cart frames. End caps are designed to maximize interlocking features with the Concierge handle so as to withstand twisting and abuse.

__ Responsibilities __

Concept and development, final production geometry, prototypes, testing and design validation.
Battery Charging Station - In store mobile Charging Station for batteries of the Concierge unit. Removable bays manage the cooling of electronics, separating clean from dirty air within the unit. This rugged design reduces damage to critical components and is equipped with a dead man's brake to minimize safety risks when moving a fully loaded cart.
