Amazon's cashier-free grocery store finally opens to the public tomorrow

Amazon to open checkout-free store inĀ Seattle	 	 	 			Amazon is about to open its long-promised convenience store with zero checkout lines

The store, located at 2131 7th Ave near the corner of 7th and Blanchard, will be open from 7 a.m.to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, and is meant to help speed up the shopping experience by ditching the traditional checkout. At the forefront of the new age of technology-assisted living are Amazon and Google, who have created home assistants that can do virtually anything for you with voice commands - activate lights in any room, turn on music anywhere in your home, order pizza for delivery, even turn on your electric robot maid. The inside of the store is just like any other, with products you can buy all over the place. Once a person leaves the premises, the total price of the goods is charged to their associated Amazon account; they'll also receive a receipt. On the way out, you just walk out - no scanning.

What Will the Shopping Experience at an Amazon Go Store Be Like?

The fully automatic process is driven by thousands of tiny infrared cameras placed all around the store, watching your every move.

The store had an nearly 14-month trial run, the Seattle Times reported, and is at last opening its doors at 7 a.m. tomorrow to "anyone with the Amazon Go smartphone app and a linked Amazon account".

Amazon did not discuss if or when it would add more Go locations, and reiterated that it had no plans to add the technology to the larger and more complex Whole Foods stores.

USA Prioritizes External Threats over Terrorism
President Donald Trump discussed the strategy with Mattis and senior military leaders during his Thursday visit to the Pentagon. The document notes that the USA military can no longer count on conducting its operations in an uncontested environment.

Sleek black cameras monitoring from above and weight sensors in the shelves help Amazon determine exactly what people take. From there, you can stow away your phone and grab all the items you need. Now that it will be open to the general public, the goal is to learn more about how to make it work for everyone, said Puerini. Amazon said Sunday that more may open in the future, but that "for now we're laser focused on this store".

Second, how will people react to the notion of having their actions tracked inside the store?

Amazon Go in practice sounds like the ultimate "Big Brother" grocery store.

The store also offers a basic lineup of grocery items, including milk, condiments, coffee, tea, toilet paper and the like. Deeper into the store, shoppers can find a small selection of grocery items, including meats and meal kits. This elimiates the need for check outs and allows stores to be staffed minmally.
