Amazon Go finally launched after a year of trial and error. If successful, this will help them first transform the grocery business and eventually all of retail. They are using wireless technology as the center of this new universe. Let’s take a look at how the world of retail has changed and will continue to change going forward thanks to Amazon and mobile technology.
What is Amazon Go? It lets you walk in, pick up what you want and walk out. No cashiers, no credit cards, no unloading your basket, packing bags and reloading it. As you walk out, sensors charge the app on your smartphone. It’s very similar to ordering online from Amazon, but it’s in a retail environment.
