Some time ago, there was talk of possible bookstores or stores opened by Amazon, at least in America: today that dream has come true. He opened the first in Seattle for testing #AmazonGo, #supermarket where you enter with your cell phone and exit without paying. Or rather, thanks to Amazon's sophisticated technology, everything we take and take away will then be automatically charged to your credit card. Without making lines, queues or pulling out a thousand pennies.
The videos that Amazon prepared to launch the project are really exciting. We see a girl entering the supermarket, passing her cellphone on a kind of turnstile, and from that moment on, everything she takes from the shelf will be added to her virtual cart. If you put an object on the shelf, it will be deducted. When you leave, all you have to do is go through the electronic turnstiles: at this point the shopping will be charged to you, and you will go home with the products in the envelope. Without queuing at the checkout.
The shop is expected to open to the public next year, once the experimentation phase is over. We don't know if other stores will open, perhaps in Europe, but this seems to be the trend. In addition to food, you can also buy ready-made meals. The goal, for Amazon, is not to cut salespeople by saving on salaries, but to optimize their work, using them for example for the arrangement of shelves and making sure that they can help customers find what they are looking for. .
