Amazon Just Changed The Game With New Stores Where You Can Buy Stuff But Not Checkout

This is NUTS. Amazon just announced something that I’m pretty sure 100 percent of people who don’t work for Amazon would say is simply not possible. It’s called “Amazon Go.” Basically, you can go into one of these special grocery stores, pick up whatever you want and then leave. No standing in the checkout line. Not even the “15 items or less” line. No waiting at all. If you don’t believe me, watch the video announcement below. Even then, you probably still won’t believe it. I barely do. The video says it’s coming early 2017 which is really, really soon. How is technology that advanced? I can barely figure out how to operate my French Press. And now cell phones can figure out when I hold a sandwich in my hand? Wild.
