Grocery shopping becomes even easier

Normally I wouldn’t write on something like this, but I found it to be an interesting thought.

Phillips has recently come out with new “smart light” technology that tells customers in a store where they need to go in order to gather all of the ingredients necessary for the recipe they are looking for.  The technology uses light-based communication to create a positioning grid for your phone.  This grid will tell your phone what route you need to take through the store to get everything for your recipe.  The lights can also point customers to location-based discounts or other products throughout the store that are on sale.  This seems like a great idea and hopefully it catches on and Phillips is already testing their new smart lights in a few stores.  These lights may start gaining popularity pretty fast so prepare yourselves for the next generation of efficient shopping!
