Four months after Amazon opened its first futuristic convenience store in its hometown of Seattle, the company said on Monday that it will bring new Amazon Go locations to San Francisco and Chicago later this year.

"As Amazon continues its aggressive expansion and historic innovation, many USA cities are being treated to remarkable perks, including Free two-hour alcohol delivery, self-checkout grocery stores, and unlabeled, unpackaged returns to Kohl's".

For taking up the advantage of shopping in the Seattle store, customers need to first download the Amazon Go app and link it to a payment method. Amazon's technology, including overhead cameras, keeps track of what they buy and charges customers after they leave. A specific timeline for the IL store is unknown at this time. But curiosity also followed when Amazon opened its first bookstore in 2016. It has opened more than a dozen bookstores, taken over space in some Kohl's department stores and bought Whole Foods previous year, giving it 470 grocery stores.

Huge discovery about Lost asteroid stuns scientists
The Cheliabinsk meteorite measured no more than 20 meters when it entered the atmosphere over Russian Federation in February 2013. The object was first designated as ZJ99C60, but soon it was confirmed it was the lost asteroid 2010 WC9 .

While the stores are notable for the lack of cashiers and a futuristic experience, there are employees on site for food preparation and other tasks. "It would also depend on what products they have", said Suzanne Maso, who may use the store. As the customers move through the store, each item is added to their digital tab.

The app uses the same types of technologies used in self-driving cars: computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep learning.

Amazon executives had hinted during the January opening of the pilot store on the company's Seattle headquarters campus that they planned to expand, but the company had been silent on its road map.

According to CNN Money, Seattle's location doesn't use Whole Foods branding but does stock the 365 brand that the chain specializes in.
