Proposed AUG program practically holds your hand while you shop

The Augmented Living Goods Program could not make it easier to shop for local and responsible groceries unless they promised a personal expert shopper to every person that steps foot in a grocery store.

I’m not exaggerating. It’s the future, and it’s one of the most useful and beautiful ideas to come out of this age of excessive technologies.

Unfortunately, it’s only an idea proposed for the Greener Gadgets Design Contest, but we can cross our fingers and hope that whether this program wins or loses the contest, it becomes a reality. I can see it on my iPod touch now.

Until it does become a reality, though, you better already be using GoodGuide‘s iPhone application. It’s a great tool and I hope it becomes one of many in the near future.

Happy (responsible) shopping!

  1. wow, that’s kinda dope. on some jetsons type ish..hahaha. it would be really interesting to see if this does come into fruition.

    • I doubt it will. Because I don’t think enough people care, but I really hope one day… In a Jetson’s world, maybe, yea… hahaha

  2. The idea of an app like that is great. In Europe all organic or ‘bio’ foods are already required to have a lot of that information printed on the package, but being able to pull up the info for any product and in a uniform format definitely makes sense.
