Amazon Go is a new kind of store with no checkout required. Amazon has created the world’s most advanced shopping technology so you never have to wait in line. With Amazon’s Just Walk Out Shopping experience, simply use the Amazon Go app to enter the store, take the products you want, and go! No lines, no checkout.
Amazon checkout-free shopping experience is made possible by the same types of technologies used in self-driving cars: computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep learning. Amazon’s Just Walk Out Technology automatically detects when products are taken from or returned to the shelves and keeps track of them in a virtual cart. When you’re done shopping, you can just leave the store. Shortly after, it will charge your Amazon account and send you a receipt.
Just browse and shop like you would at any other store. Then you’re on your way. No lines, no checkout.
Amazon store will be 1,800 square feet of retail space is conveniently compact so busy customers can get in and out fast.
Four years ago Amazon asked itself: what if we could create a shopping experience with no lines and no checkout? Could we push the boundaries of computer vision and machine learning to create a store where customers could simply take what they want and go? Our answer to those questions is Amazon Go and Just Walk Out Shopping.
Amazon Go is currently open to Amazon employees in our Beta program, and will open to the public in early 2017. Our store is located at 2131 7th Ave, Seattle, WA, on the corner of 7th Avenue and Blanchard Street.
