Amazon closing out 2016 with a ton of announcements. Super interesting to see them expand to brick and mortar, a huge growth opportunity, and do it in a unique, tech-centric way.

This is going to be more impactful than self-driving cars. I wonder when India will be ready for Amazon Go though.

Haha no way … two days ago on the way home from shopping, I said to my girlfriend that our children will just walk out of the store and pay as they leave. I also gave a detailed explanation of how the technique could look like – its exactly what you see in the video 😱
Can someone speak to the technical aspects of how this store works? I don't quite understand how "machine learning" would be used to figure out exactly which bottle of soda I grab. Are there cameras all over the store and/or are they tracking my phone through the store?

Apple has been doing a variation of this (self checkout on your own phone) for a couple years now, but this takes it to a whole different level!
