The shopping trolley handle will use LED's to let shoppers keep track of each item's food miles.
The handle mounted device will be able to scan a product's barcode and determine its food miles, or how far it has traveled to reach the store. A series of LEDs will light up in relationship to how many food miles each item costs, with a larger number of lights indicating more miles. The handle can also be calibrated to measure factors such as fat, salt, and seasonality.
