The “Just Walk Out” technology used by Amazon Go stores and Fresh supermarkets is now arriving at two Whole Foods locations.

Shoppers simply need to scan their in-app QR Code, use the Amazon One palm scanner, or insert a debit card linked to their Amazon upon entering the store to skip the check-out line. The Just Walk Out system uses computer vision, deep learning algorithms and sensors —similar to the tech found in self-driving cars— to keep track of exactly what shoppers are putting into their bag and putting back on the shelves.

In response to concerns over the loss of jobs due to cashier-less technology, Amazon assured workers that Whole Foods stores will still “employ a comparable number of team members,” who will “spend even more time interacting with customers and delivering a great shopping experience.”
