It's an interesting concept. I'm curious if Amazon (or other retailers) will expand the concept further.lola42 wrote: ↑January 24th, 2018, 8:05 pmAmazon Go finally leaves beta and opens to the public.

Based on one article I read, you need the app on a phone in order to get through the entry/exit gates.
If they want to get fancy, they will donate low-cost phones w/a donation app and the Go app to homeless people. Then, they could install showers and restrooms that cost, say fifty cents that the homeless people could access using the phone. Once they are all cleaned up, they can come into the store and buy stuff using the go app, funded by the donations!

This morning on my bus ride to work I saw that a second Amazon Go store is being opened sometime in the Fall in Downtown Seattle (at the corner of 5th and Marion.) The store seems to be fully operational now, but is presumably in "Beta" (open only to Amazon employees) the same way the first one was for several months before it opened.
