I’ve seen a number of these “do your shopping from home” products over the last few years but iKan seemed to have some value. It’s a little white device that sits on your counter and connects to the network via Wi-Fi. The device has a barcode scanner that can scan almost any product — you could feasibly put this in your office as well and order pens and paper — and can either send data straight to your grocery or just print out a shopping list for you. The industrial design is very clean and bright and it would actually look cool, not clunky, on a kitchen counter.
