For grocery shoppers that break a sweat trying to steer their carts around a store, there may be hope it sight.
A new invention by an Israeli electrical engineer helps make heavy loads a lot easier to push. Avraham Hagay has created a motorized shopping cart that can push up to 265 pounds.
The cart is equipped with a speed throttle, battery power indicator and on/off switch, as reported in a Gizmag article.

He is working with a local cart importer in Israel that has pitched the device to supermarkets in the region.
