I do not like a queues at the store at the box office, jostling and the unwelcoming salespeople? Amazon has opened the world’s first grocery store, where there not is and the queues, but also the cash registers. store has an area of 168 square meters and it is located in Seattle. Customers simply take them off the shelves desired items and just leave, and the money will automatically be removed when you exit the store with the card, which is linked to in your Amazon account. You do not even need to take a purse, bank card or smartphone with the appropriate service for the payment of goods purchased. Amazon Go philosophy is simple – came, took the food and left.
Goods taken off the shelf, monitored by a special system of smart sensors and cameras. Buyer shall at the entrance to the store Amazon Go run a special app and start shopping by adding the product to the cart. Sensors determine the store goods, its price, and the system adds it to the “basket” of the account. As a result, when a customer leaves the store, just the correct amount is automatically debited from the buyer’s account. The process looks like a normal trip to the supermarket, not counting the lack of funds and the availability of a huge number of cameras. In store is planned to sell the goods, as in a conventional supermarket. In principle, customers do not worry about anything – from their point of view in this system some advantages: for example, no queues and no need to wait until someone is in front of you will deal with their credit cards and recalculate trifle. For ordinary consumers it will open in early 2017.
