Amazon Go is a Checkout-less Store

Amazon is pushing into brick-and-mortar stores more and more and their latest foray is a high-tech grocery store that doesn't have cashiers or traditional checkouts. This is a "Smart" store and is a nifty idea - but it will put even more people out of work if it is successful. Right now this is a beta store - only for employees of the company. Still, it's a nifty idea that will probably prevent worker strikes.

Shoppers walking into the store call up the Amazon Go app and hold their smartphone to a scanner as they would at an airport security line. That opens a gate. Then they just pick any combination of products and walk out. Amazon charges them after they leave the store.
