Shopping trolleys need a cup holder

takeaway coffeeMy wife is always having a quiet joke at my expense, seeing as how my aging Mitsubishi Verada doesn't have a cup holder but her WRX does.

But when we were out foraging in our weekly Saturday morning shopping expedition recently I was struck by how difficult it is to manage a trolley with over-steer and bad wheel alignment while holding a large takeaway cappuccino in one's hand.

Looking around, I noticed similar couples equally challenged by the desire to push a heavy trolley with one hand and hold onto a cup of their beverage of choice with the other.

So I thought, there's a useful add-on that can be fashioned by some enterprising designer -- they can sell the idea to the retailer as a useful customer service.

After congratulating myself on such a mental leap, I then realised that an even better add-on would incorporate both a cup holder AND a magazine/newspaper tray, so that one can read one's magazine AND keep one's cup safe.

Over to you, enterprising designers...

  • Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

    Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

    Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

    The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

    We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
