shopping cart technology of awesomeness

The grocery store near S.Ev's is on two levels, and the way you get to the basement is down a moving walkway ramp thing. The first time I went there I stood at the top for like two minutes unable to figure out what I was supposed to do. Turns out, when you put the cart on the ramp, it sets a brake of some kind so your cart doesn't get away from you.

Excellent, right?

This reminds me of the Target in South San Francisco! Spice knows the one. It has an escalator for carts - where you hook your cart in one escalator and ride alongside it on a separate one next door. Very very cool. We used to take visitors there just to tour the escalator.

I was fascinated by the Target cart escalator the first time I saw one too, but this may be even cooler!

Funny--I was just looking at a friend's pictures of Seoul, including one of a cart escalator. I wonder if it's some kind of sign?
