Amazon created a even larger digicam-spying store—so we tried out to steal its fruit
SEATTLE—For how considerably and huge Amazon’s electronic footprint reaches, the company plainly would like to advance into actual-globe space as substantially as feasible. And to that conclusion, Amazon runs some of its most ambitious experiments in its headquarters’ town before rolling them out nationwide.

In 2016, I shipped Amazon offers as a gig-financial system driver, before this sort of agreement worker turned a commonplace component of the nationwide Amazon Prime Now community. And in 2018, I picked by way of the 1st “cashierless,” camera-loaded Amazon Go convenience retailer prior to the similar idea landed in other main metropolitan centers.
