The Habitat Concept Store Combines Shopping With Autonomous Robots

Amazon may have been the first to introduce a cashierless store to the masses but Honestbee's new Habitat concept store takes the cashierless concept even further. Located in a 60,000-square-foot warehouse in Singapore, the entire store is staffed by robots and humans. Automated check-out points allow payments to be made through the Honestbee app.

Once a customer has grabbed all the groceries they need from the Habitat concept store, they simply need to head to a collection point and have the QR code on their app scanned. The cart will then automatically be sent to the sorting area, where Honestbee workers will tally up the total and directly bill it to the customer. When the customer is ready to leave, their QR is scanned again and a robot will deliver their groceries to them as they leave.
