Sainsbury’s lets shoppers tune into Sky Sports News with iPad trolleys


Sainsbury’s is trialling a trolley with an iPad dock and speakers, which allows shoppers to tune into Sky Sports News via the broadcaster’s Sky Go app.

The new trolleys also feature a front bumper with a sensor, which lets off a warning noise if its gets too close to another shopper; and a battery with self-charging solar panel to ensure the iPad never runs out of power

Ian Burgess from Setwo Designs, creator of the Sky Go trolley, said: “Being able to create a gadget that is practical yet innovative is often a challenge but I think with the Sky Go trolley we’ve cracked it.

“The trolley can be used in the traditional way for shopping yet streams the latest sports news on Sky easily.”
