How many people per line? How many items? Will that shopper pull out a checkbook?
All that counting and guesswork could be a thing of the past with Amazon’s new “self-driving” tech installed at its “Amazon Go” convenience store in Seattle’s South Lake Union.
The store, on the corner of Seventh Avenue and Blanchard Street, is already open to Amazon employees and should open to the public early next year.
Everything is charged directly to the Amazon Go app.
Here’s how it works:
Scan your phone when you enter
Pick up the items you want
Walk out of the store
And Amazon will charge your account
So, will this technology kill the checkout line?
