Technology really is taking over everything. Soon, and slowly but surely, we’ll be able to walk into the grocery store, pick up whatever we need, leave the store without waiting in a checkout line or the “how are you today, ma’am” small talk, and get billed for it later via your Amazon account. Welcome to the future.
It’s called Amazon Go (I don’t know if it has anything to do with Pokemon Go) but instead, a super advanced technology that’ll make grocery shopping as easy as it comes. You want that avocado? Pick it up, and we’ll put it in your virtual shopping cart. Change your mind? Put it back, and we’ll take it back out. Done shopping? Walk out the door, and we’ll charge it to your Amazon account. Come back and see us.
How the heck does it know what you’re picking up and putting back?!
Personally, I’m always gonna be a little skeptical about features that seem too good to be true. Especially when it comes to technology. I have questions… Will this become so popular that it will eliminate jobs in a grocery store? Will shoplifting rise (or fall)? Can I earn fuel points with this?!?!
