Carrefour are trialling a digital dongle in Belgium that customers use in their kitchen to scan products into their basket as they run out by either voice recognition or scanning the barcode. The device which has a memory of 1.3 million products can also scan a competing products and suggest an equivalent product to the customer. To finalise the order, the customer will visit the online site to checkout. Retailers Waitrose and Auchan are also currently trialling this technology.
