Smart Shopping is developing an automatic IoT purchase system, using a platform that provides customers with an on-demand, no-hassle grocery shopping experience, combining essential household items with free shipping. (currently only available in Japan)
Smart Shopping was created in 2014 with the vision of providing “the best shopping concierge in the world to make usual shopping more convenient” for all kinds of users, including elderly shoppers who can’t carry weight.

How does Smart Shopping work?
Once you have a smartscale prototype, you’ll follow the step-by-step:
1.With a smartphone or with a computer, you can use Smart Shopping website.
2.In the first use, you just need to put your item on the smartscale. Total weight is automatically set from their catalog data.
3.Keep the smart scale turned on as you use its products.
4.Once it’s gone, the smart scale will order a new one.
Reminder: Don’t move the empty box from the scale, as you can see the examples on the photos.
