Basket Case - The Electric Go-Kart


Check out MIT student, Charles Guan's pimped-out, 30 mph, electric shopping cart. Geez, it's almost enough to make me want to go shopping. Check out more pics and a road test video over at Popsci.

  1. Well.. I dunno.. frankly it just looks like a Go Cart that someone has added the shopping cart to.. on top..

    Not really a pimped out Shopping Cart, but rather a decorated Go Kart.

  2. ehh, if you look at the base of that, the go-kart is clearly added to the shopping carriage, you can see the frame of the shopping carriage under tht added stuff, of course those go cart tires were totally added. I'd hate to go 30mph on shopping carriage wheels- every bump would be hurtful

  5. I want to see him use it in a store, with stuff all piled in it near him, and at the register, with the bags, handing the lady his monies from inside a pile of groceries.

    You'd hear "Thanks for shopping with us!" just as you lay down a wicked skid.
