Amazon Go, the new convenience store without any checkout lines, opens to the public on January 22nd. Shoppers can literally walk in, pickup anything they want, and walk out without ever stopping to pay. All you need to do is scan your phone once as you enter, using the Amazon Go app for iOS or Android, and an elaborate network of cameras and sensors will track what you take and automatically charge your Amazon account.
The Amazon Go store was first announced just over a year ago. It has been open to Amazon employees only, but is now ready for anyone to use. There is only one store location, at 2131 7th Ave in Seatle, WA, but if its successful, you may see them, or at least the technology behind the store, pop up in additional cities. The store is open Monday thru Friday from 7am to 9pm.
