Amazon is still struggling to get its automated grocery store, Amazon Go, to function right. Who knew it would be so hard to build a brick-and-mortar store with sensors and gadgets instead of cashiers? But in a recent test of the company's experimental Seattle store, some of Jeff Bezos' employees got a little weird. They dressed up in Pikachu costumes to go shopping.
Believe it or not, Amazon is having a little bit of trouble with its "super futuristic store with no employees" idea. The latest report out of Seattle claims that the Amazon Go concept is being delayed due to some technical struggles. Basically, the computers get really confused when people shop.
