Blog: Bender Ender

Catherine Sleep | 17 February 2004

It may look like a mini trampoline on wheels, but the Bender Ender could revolutionise the shopping experience, not least for the infirm or those with bad backs.

The Bender Ender shopping trolley has a rubber shelf which expands like a hammock as groceries are loaded into it. As they are lifted out again at the till, the hammock rises again as the load lightens, eliminating the need for shoppers to bend down to pick up items from the bottom of the trolley. Cool huh?
