Amazon unveiled a grocery store without checkout counters or lines. Amazon Go is a 1800 square foot retail space locatred in Seattle that lets shoppers grab items that they want and walk out with it, while the order gets charged to the shoppers Amazon account afterwards.
Amazon Go uses computer vision and sensors to detect the items that are taken. Shoppers scan an app as they enter the store, sensors identify the items in shoppers carts, and charges for items to the account.
Amazon Go will stock most items found in convenience stores such as snacks, drinks, bread, milk, and more. The store is open in beta to Amazon employees only. A public release is scheduled for early 2017.
