The Amazon Go grocery store in Seattle that features no lines and no checkout is now open to the public!

Get the Amazon Go app to shop at Amazon Go, a new kind of store in Seattle featuring Just Walk Out Shopping. No lines, no checkout—just grab and go!

How it Works:
• Download the Amazon Go app and sign in before you visit the store. Use the app to enter, then shop and browse as you normally would.
• When you’re done shopping, you can just leave the store. Shortly after, we’ll send you a receipt and charge your Amazon account.

What We Sell:
• We offer delicious ready-to-eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack options made by our chefs and favorite local kitchens and bakeries.
• We also have a selection of grocery essentials, from staples like bread and milk to artisan cheeses and locally made chocolates.
• For a quick home-cooked dinner, pick up one of our chef-designed Amazon Meal Kits, with all the ingredients you need to make a meal for two in about 30 minutes.

The store relies on cameras and sensors to track shoppers and items that are removed from shelves. Customers are billed after they leave the store using their credit card on file.

Only Amazon employees were able to shop at store when in first opened on December 5, 2016. The company expected to open to the public in early 2017; however, there were challenges. A source tells Reuters that those included correctly identifying shoppers with similar body types and havoc caused by children who moved items to incorrect places.

Gianna Puerini, vice president of Amazon Go, said that the store worked well in the test phase due to a four years of prior legwork. “This technology didn’t exist,” Puerini said, walking through the Seattle store. “It was really advancing the state of the art of computer vision and machine learning.”

Amazon recently acquired Whole Foods but has not yet announced plans to implement this technology in those stores.

This is what every retailer has wished and pined for since the microchip was first invented. I remember reading about this almost 20 years ago in the same way people thought about electric cars. SOMEday is TOday!

I use Amazon Go everyday. I use Amazon Go. I use Amazon Go everyday. I use Amazon Go. When I wake up, I'm grabbing my list. I wanna snag them all. I want to use Amazo-on. All day long. All day long. I use Amazon Go everyday. I use Amazon Go. I use Amazon Go everyday. I use Amazon Go. *slow-motion effect*.

Nothing more than a greedy company killing jobs here in the U.S.A.

What happens when this type of technology will be all over and if the system doesn't want to buy anything because you are the opposition? Be careful what you wish for (with this cashless systems)!

This is what is precisely wrong with us. Instead of adopting and growing with innovations and inventions we constantly whine and complain about jobs. While the rest of the world is surging ahead , we are falling behind.

At the very least we won't end up being in the terminator universe right?

This is innovation. I have been using Amazon Go for a little over two months, and I can't tell you how infuriating it is to go to Walmart, see 20 potential lanes, but only 3 open with long lines. This is a much more pleasant experience. How many jobs do you think this will eliminate even if escalated to multiple outlets? In fact, it may create jobs to manage and care for these systems. You will still need those to prepare food, check ID, stock, intake inventory, manage, etc. in addition to creating trained professionals to install and manage systems around the world. Even Walmart has stated they are investing in technology. This is merely a platform to build off of.
