Amazon Go launches: The automated retail revolution begins

A patent application filed by Amazon in early 2015 first revealed details about a new kind of retail store that would allow Amazon customers to pick items and leave without stopping at a cashier register or kiosk.

Amazon shares are seen opening higher Monday, as the global tech giant opens the doors of its checkout free supermarket Amazon Go! to the public in Seattle. These are automatically added to the their bills, although items which are returned to the shelves are immediately removed from their bills.

The ceiling-mounted cameras work with sensors on the shelves of the store and can sense and record when an item has been taken, and indeed if it has been put back.

Although the Amazon Go store has been open to Amazon employees since December 2016, it has taken until now for the supermarket to go live to the public.

"We got a lot of feedback on selection", said Dilip Kumar, Amazon Go's technology vice president, adding that most changes over the past year involved the store's inventory.

Amazon has unveiled its view of the future of retail with the official opening of the company's next-generation store.

While Amazon Go hopes to bring shopping convenience to the next level, the fear that it's technology might displace some 3.5 million cashiers in the United States should it go public, also arises.

When you arrive, use the app to enter the store, then feel free to put your phone away-you don't need it to shop. Until Amazon develop robots to unpack delivery trucks and stack store shelves, its a safe bet humans will be employed for a while to come. The 1,800 square feet retail space is a heavily-surveilled ghost town.

Amazon previously said it planned to open several Amazon Go stores, but it hasn't discussed those plans in recent months.
