"Get the app and give it a credit card—just like Uber and Amazon trained us—and the app will spit back a QR code. Krishna Motukuri, the guy running the show, calls that code up on his phone and flips it over for the scanner; the turnstile's waist-high doors fold back. I saunter through. I'm in! I am shopping."Read More

"'It will fundamentally change the economics of a retail operation,' Motukuri said. 'The biggest expense for retailers is the checkout, whether it's the operation itself or the time employees spend there. That's essentially where we see a huge improvement.
