The History of Things: the Shopping Cart Recently Turned 80 Years Old! | #ManufacturingMonday

CBS News recently celebrated a story from their 1977 archives, about a 1937 invention by Sylvan Goldman: the shopping cart! Invented in a carpentry shop, it lead to the formation of numerous manufacturing companies – not to mention toddler rides we’re all fond of remembering! And from Oklahoma City of all places – I never knew!

Charles Kuralt went “On the Road” to Oklahoma City, where he met Sylvan Goldman, famed for having invented the ubiquitous grocery store shopping cart in 1937. Originally broadcast on CBS News’ “Who’s Who” on January 11, 1977.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
