Amazon opens a supermarket with no checkouts

In a move that could revolutionize the way we buy groceries, Amazon opens its first supermarket without checkouts – human or self-service – to shoppers on Monday.

Amazon Go, in Seattle, has been tested by staff for the past year.

It uses ceiling-mounted cameras and electronic sensors to identify each customer and track what items they select.

Purchases are billed to customers’ credit cards when they leave the store.
