Is Amazon Go the Grocery Store of the Future?

Retail powerhouse Amazon is disrupting retail yet again, with the opening of its checkout-free Amazon Go grocery store in Seattle.It looks and feels like a regular grocery store, but with one major difference: There’s no checkout — and no checkout lines. Upon entering, shoppers scan a special smartphone app that registers them into the store. After grabbing their items, customers are free to walk right out.

Overhead throughout the store, hundreds of cameras read labels through machine learning and sense the shopper’s body type.  Boy, 14, Dies After Surgery to Remove 10-Pound Face Tumor in Florida Photo Credit: Getty Images This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.
