Amazon Go introduces a new way to shop

Index

No checkout lines!

Amazon has just introduced a store that promises to utilize the ‘most advanced shopping technology’. But it’s not a website – it’s a brick-and-mortar store based in Seattle that lets you shop for groceries. But the catch is that you can simply take the stuff that you want and then leave the store without going through the checkout counter.

Amazon has just introduced a store that promises to utilize the ‘most advanced shopping technology’. But it’s not a website – it’s a brick-and-mortar store based in Seattle that lets you shop for groceries. But the catch is that you can simply take the stuff that you want and then leave the store without going through the checkout counter.

The way it works is that Amazon Go is that you simply open a corresponding app, scan your smartphone so you can go inside the store. From there, you can simply grab a basked and grab the stuff that you need and simply walk out without going through a line for a checkout counter.

The store uses a system that Amazon says features machine learning, computer vision, and artificial intelligence technology that can know all the stuff that you take inside the store. Even if you had second thoughts and put back an item that you took, the system would be notified of the change. Think of it as a legal way of shoplifting.

Once you exit the store, all the items that you take will be automatically charged to your Amazon account with a receipt that will be sent through an app.

Amazon Go is set to launch next year in Seattle with a plan to expand to various cities. It’s definitely a genius way to shop for groceries, especially if you are not a fan of long queues at the checkout counter (who is, right?).
