Thanks to the latest retail technology from Amazon called “Just Walk Out,” you might no longer have to wait in line to pay for your goods at airports. Hudson, a North American travel retailer, has put this technology into use in its Hudson Nonstop store at Las Vegas International Airport. This is a revolutionary step that will make shopping easier and offer a contactless buying experience. With Amazon’s Just Walk Out, which uses an Amazon One device, customers can walk into the store, pick out the things they want, and pay for them by waving their hand over the device. Your credit or debit card is linked to your palm signature, which makes it possible for a smooth, automatic exchange. Hudson opens the way for a new way to shop that could change the way stores work in other airports and commuter hubs. Its goal is to meet the growing demand for speed and ease.
