Hi Kenrick,

Yes i have seen that product before. It could work for a single person but not for a family shop. The product would need to be wider i guess, similar to a rectangular carry cot. People would not use two of what has already been developed.

I was at Aldi's the other day, and noticed that the till workers are timed to keep the costs down. Consequently, there is not time to bag it all up. Then we had to bag it in to the boot, in the rain..nitemare!

A family sized, collapsible trolley that could of been transferred straight to the car would of been great.

Think about it carefully, this box has a capacity of 25 kg. if you doubled the size of it, it would be 50 kg! That's 110 lbs in old money, almost a hundredweight (cwt)!!!

Now this wonder box would have to be fitted with power-assisted jacks to lift it in and out of the car boot. Or, if all the family went shopping, they could all get round it and "on the count of three" etc.

As for Aldi, it's a matter of consideration for your fellow shopper and being educated in efficient shopping methods.
All Aldi stores have a very long counter for customers to pack their shopping. The idea is, at the cash-out, everything back in the trolley, to the packing area and pack your bags. Bags back in the trolley and to the car. Very efficient and uncomplicated. Something lacking in British supermarkets. But then again, the Brits love to moan when they stand in long queues. Why do they have to stand in long queues? Because some numpty is blocking the cash out packing their bags!

A sensored device that automatically switches mobile phones to silent/vibrate only.

How annoying is it when a mobile phone goes off when present at a public meeting place, especially when the venue is of a sensitive nature e.g. Church service, show, meeting etc. So many people either forget or don't adjust their phone properly as they enter.

Imagine a sensored device that is located at the entrance and exit doorways. As a person walks through, the sensor detects any phone that is on and automatically switches it to silent mode. Then on exit, the sensor automatically switches it back to the original setting. ;)

Different shaped fuel pump nozzles for diesel and unleaded vehicle fuel. This would stop putting the wrong fuel in your vehicle and damaging the engine.
There could be a square nozzle for the diesel vehicles and diesel vehicle owners could be given the option to buy a plastic clip on adapter to fit over the filler hole of their vehicle.

Computer VDU stand for poor eyesight - Forward and reverse movable electronic base that is operated by the mouse.

There is no need to have one of these stands.

If you want to read something you can make it large or smaller by holding down the Ctrl key and turn the centre wheel, on your mouse hand set, at the same time.

John.

P.S.

You can usually do the same thing, on a computer, three different ways but the way I have told you, to make the print larger, is probably the easiest to do.
