Amazon’s Cashierless Store Accidentally Got Shoplifted On Its First Day Open, But It’s All Good
Amazon Go, the new cashierless store that opened in downtown Seattle on Monday, accidentally got shoplifted on it’s first day open to the public, but no one really seemed to give a crap, so, COOL!
That’s right, after more than a year from when it was first announced and its opening being pushed back several months in March of 2017, Amazon Go (AKA the store of every man’s dreams) finally opened its doors — and failed. But only a little bit.
Here’s how it works, basically, in case you aren’t aware. You go in, you don’t have to deal with any humans other than other shoppers, you pick up your shit, put it in a bag, and you walk out without being asked if you “found everything you were looking for.” It’s freaking genius.
Back in December of 2016, when Amazon Go was first announced we semi-joked, “There isn’t even self-checkouts. Amazon is so smart they already know what you took. And if they don’t, that is on them, Bro. That’s their fuck up, not yours.”
