In today’s world of supercenters and hypermarkets, shopping quickly and efficiently can be next to impossible. Russian designer Liubov Kurzanova has created a solution: the hypermarket vehicle ‘UNIT.’

The UNIT is a special, high-tech shopping cart concept that provides the shopper with specific information about the goods they are shopping for and how to maneuver themselves around the hypermarket. Equipped with a barcode scanner and navigation system, the hypermarket vehicle UNIT also has an electric motor (which charges when you park) and a basket that can change in volume depending on how much space you need—so you don’t need to bend down to scoop out your purchases.
