Shopping is fun especially during payday. Picking up mostly anything from the grocery shelves then put it on a cart and then pushing it for checkout.
However, the fun usually ends and sometimes turn into frustrations the moment you got stuck in a long queue.
What’s worst is that, sometimes when you’re close to the cash register area the cashier will tell everyone that she will only accept one more customer and the rest needs to transfer to another line.
Amazon is currently working on a solution to solve this shopper’s dilemma by integrating the today’s technologies. They called the service as Amazon Go.
Here’s how Amazon Go works according to Amazon:
Our checkout-free shopping experience is made possible by the same types of technologies used in self-driving cars: computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep learning. Our Just Walk Out technology automatically detects when products are taken from or returned to the shelves and keeps track of them in a virtual cart. When you’re done shopping, you can just leave the store. Shortly after, we’ll charge your Amazon account and send you a receipt.
If you’re more visual, here a short video:
This technology is currently available for Amazon employees and serves as its beta users. The store is located at 2131 7th Ave, Seattle, WA.
According to Amazon, they will open the store to public in early 2017.
