Amazon has deployed its Just Walk Out cashierless retail system in its newest Seattle-based Amazon Fresh physical grocery outlet, its first use in a full-size store.

Just Walk Out utilizes cameras and sensors to log items selected by customers, eliminating the need for checkout lines; shoppers scan their phones when they enter the store, and just "walk out" after loading their basket or cart.

The new store, in the Factoria neighborhood of Bellevue, WA, also will feature Amazon One, the retailer's palm-scanning ID system that recently was adopted by Whole Foods stores.
