Today, you can order basically anything online, including groceries. But you are still going to end up grocery shopping at one point or the other, and the huge lines can be really annoying. Amazon has an alternative and has introduced Amazon Go, a shopping experience where instead of traditional checkouts, lines and cashiers, you enter, get your stuff and exit. No lines, no cashiers.

Amazon said they call this 'Just Walk Out Shopping' experience. First, you will have to download their Amazon Go app and use it when you enter the store. You take the products you want and walk out.

The 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. The technology automatically detects when products are taken from or returned to the shelves and keeps track on your app. When you leave the store, Amazon will send you the receipt and charge your Amazon account.

The first Amazon Go store is located in Seattle and is currently open only to Amazon employees in their Beta program. It will open to the public in early 2017.
