Cashierless Amazon stores coming to Chicago

Cashierless Amazon stores coming to Chicago

The good folks over at Amazon are expanding once again.

The 11 key-factors they looked at include restaurants participating in Prime Now, Amazon bookstores, free two-hour Whole Food delivery and Amazon Lockers.

The actual Amazon Go store is extremely tech-heavy, was expensive to build and can only sell a narrow range of specially-selected items - nowhere near the 50,000 or so items a typical supermarket stocks. Using the Amazon Go App to enter, it implements what the company calls "walk out technology". When they leave, they just leave.

The company says it uses computer vision, machine learning algorithms and sensors to figure out what people are grabbing off its store shelves. In February, real-estate tracker Curbed took note of a building permit for construction of a 625-square-foot Amazon store in Chicago's Loop district. But don't help out strangers: Amazon warns that grabbing an item from the shelf for someone else means you'll be charged for it.
