AMAZON officially opened a brick-andmortar convenience store in Seattle, Washington (華盛頓州西雅圖), in late January. The Amazon Go store does not need workers; it detects what a customer buys through many cameras and sensors, and then charges the customer’s account automatically when the customer leaves.
The net giant actually started testing the store, located at the ground floor of its headquarters, about a year ago. In its first year, the store only allowed Amazon workers to enter. Now it is open to the public. Taking up 167 square metres, the store sells daily necessities, drinks and readymade food. Amazon calls this shopping style ‘just walk out’, which uses the same technology as self-driving cars.
