Idea: Pay-as-you-leave shopping experience

Idea Summary:
– swipe card or facial recognition connected to your account as you enter store
– put stuff in cart and leave store, items detected by RFID or similar tech
– your account is charged with no cashier human interaction needed 🙁

(At the time when I wrote this, these kinds of stores didn’t exist. Amazon came out with something very similar to this after I posted this idea. Not saying I influenced them, of course, just explaining why I felt like it was worth documenting this idea. )

  1. Looks like you’ve got an Amazon Go idea: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_Go

    1. You’re right. I had the idea about a year before they released the Amazon Go idea. But it is basically the same thing.
