Wireless Supermarket Of The Future Launched
from the high-tech-shopping dept
We’ve had stories about stores experimenting with new retail shopping technologies, but now there’s a supermarket in Germany that has been built from the ground up with the latest in “experimental” retail shopping technologies – including wireless checkouts, smart tags, smart shelves, touchscreens on the shopping carts with barcode scanners, and digital cameras as part of their “VeggieVision” system, that can distinguish apples from oranges. The whole store is seen as an experiment for the industry to see “what works”. It will be interesting to see what they have to say a year or so from now.
