Amazon is the web’s largest retailer, but the company has long been planning a move into the brick-and-mortar retail scene as well. Now, the reports that Amazon was hard at work on a revolutionary corner store concept have finally achieved fruition. It’s called Amazon Go, and it looks like the future.
Amazon Go is a system that marries physical stores with advanced algorithms and sensors to eliminate the need for a typical store checkout. Instead of packing all the things you need into a basket or cart and then dragged it through a tedious checkout process, you just grab whatever you need and walk out of the store.
