Okay, so maybe we’re not quite ready to print Straight-Entry, Flip-Front, Slatwall Scan Hooks as needed in the store, but 3D prototype printing is alive and well in retail fixture design and manufacture. Here is an example of a prototype upgrade ScanLock Hook Lock (monochrome) next to the present version (grey and red), unguarded in my day-job company’s “Skunk Works.” Those design engineers play it pretty close to the vest on new items and upgraded designs. Guess I will have to wait for the Press Release to learn about the new features. CLICK the thumbnail for a slightly better look. Shhhhhh. Top secret whatever the design change. The 3D Prototype even includes a ScanLock® registered trademark up top. Nice attention to detail, even in the prototype.
