How about a shopping experience without a checkout line. You go to a department store. Pick the products of your choice and needs. You walk out just like that. There is no checkout line. You don’t have to wait in that endless queues. Oh Yeah seriously.
Amazon introduced a new concept, Amazon Go, one of the world’s most advanced shopping technology. With Amazon Go, there is no line, no checkout, Just grab and go.
So what is Amazon Go and how does it work?
Amazon Go is a new kind of store with no checkout required. It is one of the world’s most advanced shopping technology so you never have to wait in line. With the new Just Walk Out Shopping experience, simply use the Amazon Go app to enter the store, take the products you want, and go! No lines, no checkout. (No, seriously.)
The new 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. 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, Amazon will charge your Amazon account and send you a receipt.
All you need is an Amazon account, a supported smartphone, and the free Amazon Go app.
Amazon Go is currently open to Amazon employees and will be open to the public in early 2017. The retail store is located at 2131 7th Ave, Seattle, WA, on the corner of 7th Avenue and Blanchard Street. (1,800 square feet of retail space)
Amazon Go offer delicious ready-to-eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack options made fresh every day by on-site chefs of Amazon and favorite local kitchens and bakeries. The selection of grocery essentials ranges from staples like bread and milk to artisan cheeses and locally made chocolates. For a quick home-cooked dinner, pick up one of their chef-designed Amazon Meal Kits, with all the ingredients you need to make a meal for two in about 30 minutes.

Needless to say, this would be a revolutionary idea and a whole new shopping experience for the customers. It saves time and effort for the customers. Amazon might sell this technology to other stores and make money from it. However thanks to technology. Shopping is now easier and more exciting.
