I would prefer how it is now. I like actually being able to physically look at something before I buy it

Would it not be simpler to order it over the internet then just pick it up in a prepacked box or something?

It'll be expensive to upkeep and it'll use a lot of power, but it'll cut down on shoplifting and damaged merchandise. Pretty ******* genius, if you ask me.

this seems impractical,
you have dozens and dozens of touch screens all over the place instead of one handheld device (with an alarm so you can not steal it) and posters with id codes for each product?

I could see it working well..

1. customer walks into the store, picks up a RFID card that represents shopping cart.

2. customer waves RFID card at screen so it knows who's adding items to the cart

3. while customer adds stuff to their order, workers/robots get the required items from storage and pack them.

4. customer gets to the end, pays and gets their **** quicker since it's prepacked

The big advantages of having screens are that the store layout can be rearranged in seconds instead of days, the floor space required is significantly reduced, it never needs to be refilled on the shelves by staff, and all of the packing can be done while the customer is browsing which also keeps stuff like dairy & meats cold for as long as possible.

Since even my 6 yearls old cousin have a smartphone, wouldn't it be easier to make an app instead of buying giant lcd screens?

First I thought smartphones too, and it is in korea so most people probably would have one. But if the customer doesn't have a smartphone, then they can't shop... (but then again, does the shop keeper want those peasants in his shop?)

What floor space? The best way to do this is have a row of individual screens and just let someone make their whole order from that one screen. The only reason I walk around a store is because I physically have to get the items.

the only downside of that is that you loose the advertizing aspect of putting more purchased items at the back of the store so people walk past the less purchased items and make impulse buys. But I'm sure there'd be other ways to increase impulse buys with having one screen for a customer to order too...eg adds around the screen... "buy coke"

Do what amazon does:

Customers who have purchased _______ also purchased _________. Add to cart?

i'm strugglin'... is this awesome or just one step closer to people from wall-e?
User avatar #1 - gyasa (07/26/2013) [-]
but she doesnt seem to have some sort of device (thats s a mobile or something in hear hand right?) so how do they know who orders what and what goes with what? arent you supposed to scan some code and give that at the checkout?
User avatar #3 to #1 - qwarthos (07/26/2013) [-]
maybe when they select the item they input their name and at checkout they just have to use their name to get all the stuff
User avatar #4 to #3 - gyasa (07/26/2013) [-]
but that still leaves out that they have no clue what items she buys asuming there is more than 1 person in the shop right?

''checkout at the counter in the end to have all their ordered stuff packed in Bags''

so this would either mean she says up every single item she bought or she needs some kind of scanner?

might just be me overthinking it as always
