Shopping carts have a naggin design flaw that manifests itself in the winter. The wheels simply refuse to move in snow and slush, making passage across a parking lot very difficult and frustrating. As such, this cart has two small rockets on the front that are aimed down and slighlty behind. This will allow the snow to melt making movement easier, and they will provide a bit of forward momentum. Any accidents in the lot due to the melted snow freezing into ice can be easily avoided by throwing those special salts around on the ground.

       Putting ski's on them would be cheaper, easier and safer. Though I can see an argument for combining this with rocket propulsion. See that baby fly!

       but if you turn the cart upside down, all of the contents fall out.

       The contents won't fall out if you have a net stretched over the goods first...
