This what we’ve all been waiting for Amazon Go – Shopping Technology with No Queues. They call it Just walk out technology!  Queues are going to be a thing of the past, I hope.   No lines, no queues, no check out, brilliant.  Queues are one of the reasons I do all of my shopping online. Standing in a queue is such a waste of time. What a dream it would be if at lunch time or when you are in a rush, you could just run in get what you need and out again.

Amazon Go - Shopping Technology with No Queues

Amazon Go – Shopping Technology with No Queues

The team at Amazon are coming up with lots of ideas lately and this has to be their best idea ever. Amazon Go – Shopping Technology with No Queues, No Queues I tell you. I’m very excited by this new tech.   Amazon have created an advanced shopping technology where you turn on your Amazon Go app, go into the shop pick up what you want and walk out.  Check out the video below, these shoppers look like shoplifters, how that will be policed?

How does Amazon Go work ?

The Amazon Go app utilizes computer vision, sensor fusion and deep learning which is the same types of technologies used in self-driving cars.

 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.

 

 

Its as simple as that – All you need is an Amazon account, a supported smartphone, and the free Amazon Go app.

They have a 1800 square foot store in Seattle right now which is going through a beta stage but will be open to the public in early 2017.

What do you think about Amazon Go – Shopping Technology with No Queues?  Some people think its technology gone too far and other people might be concerned that it will mean less jobs?
