#TrendyTuesday #AmazonGoisgettingcloserWritten by Tracy Ballzer
Amazon brought their cashierless store Go to Chicago. They've had a couple locations in Seattle but this is the first one outside of Seattle. Two of the Seattle stores have grocery essentials but this store in Chicago will only have Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snacks.
According to Amazon's website:
"How does Amazon Go work?
Our checkout-free shopping experience is made possible by the same types of technologies used in self-driving cars: computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep learning. Our Just Walk Out Technology automatically detects when products are taken from or returned to the shelves and keeps track of them in a virtual cart. When you’re done shopping, you can just leave the store. A little later, we’ll send you a receipt and charge your Amazon account."

If I'm being honest, it kind of creeps me out, but I still want to check it next time I'm in Chicago!
