Thanks To Amazon Go, You May Never Have To Wait In Line Again
That's right, just walk on out of the store.

Now here's a concept we thought we'd only see in The Jetsons. Amazon's futuristic in-store shopping experience coined Amazon Go uses "Just Walk Out" technology to change shopping forever. The announcement made yesterday morning was trending on Twitter and had many recognising that the future is now.
Customers need an Amazon account, a smartphone, and the free Amazon Go app. Then, what looks like shoplifting suddenly becomes completely legal. Grab and bag items, and the app will charge you later for whatever you leave the store with—meaning you never have to wait in line again! A combination of sensors, computer vision, and deep learning track what was taken off the shelves or even put back.
Leave it to Amazon to bring the future to life.
