Amazon Go

a

Amazon Go is a new kind of store with no checkout required. Amazon created the world’s most advanced shopping technology so you never have to wait in line. With their “Just Walk Out” Shopping experience, simply use the Amazon Go app to enter the store, take the products you want, and go! No lines, no checkout!

The checkout-free shopping experience is made possible by the same types of technologies used in self-driving cars: computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep learning. Their Just Walk Out technology automatically detects when products are taken from or returned to the shelves and keeps track of them in a virtual cart. When you’re done shopping, you can just leave the store. Shortly after, your Amazon account will be charged and a receipt will be sent to you.

The future stores will roughly measure 1,800 square feet which is conveniently compact so busy customers can get in and out fast.

To get started, all you need is an Amazon account, a supported smartphone, and the free Amazon Go app.

Amazon Go offers delicious ready-to-eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack options made fresh every day by on-site chefs and favorite local kitchens and bakeries. The selection of grocery essentials ranges from staples like bread and milk to artisan cheeses and locally made chocolates. You’ll find well-known brands plus special finds.

Currently there is a single store which is located at 2131 7th Ave, Seattle, WA, on the corner of 7th Avenue and Blanchard Street. Amazon Go is currently open to Amazon employees in a Beta program, and will open to the public in early 2017.

The Hottest Lexus IS Ever

1
Lexus wants you to know it’s the hottest automobile brand around. So, it created a red-and-green, hotter-than-hell Sriracha version of its new Lexus IS sports sedan.

The vehicle was produced and was on display at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Sadly, you won’t actually be able to buy the Sriracha IS as it Lexus made only one.

The spicy car has a Sriracha-injected steering wheel; temperature settings that go from Cool to Sriracha; a special Sriracha paint job, Sriracha Red offset with flecks of chili-like flakes; green accents including the spindle grille outline and hand-stitching on the seats; and even a key fob with an “emergency chili button” that dispenses Sriracha from a nozzle and the trunk is stocked with 43 bottles of Sriracha for emergencies.

“The new Lexus IS is so hot, we decided to make it Sriracha hot, with all the custom details every Sriracha fan will appreciate,” says Brian Smith, Lexus vice president of marketing.

“I feel so humbled to see my Lexus and Sriracha friends’ love for my hot sauce,” adds David Tran, CEO and founder of Sriracha maker Huy Fong Foods. “The Lexus Sriracha IS is really the perfect mix for a ‘hot’ and ‘spicy car’—just the way I like it.”

Lexus agency Team One dreamed up the idea and helped to execute it.

Oreo Swedish Fish Flavored Cookies Are A Real Thing

There’s a new Oreo mashup that combines the classic chocolate cookies with a Swedish fish-flavored filling. It’s one of the most bizarre-sounding flavor combinations that Oreo has ever come out with, and people are very curious about how it tastes.

There is a catch…the Swedish fish Oreos are only available at Kroger stores and will be rolling out this week.

“We know that consumers enjoy variety when it comes to snacking so we create all of our limited-edition flavors to provide surprising new twists people know and love and on occasion, create unexpected and unique flavor combinations that people may never have thought were possible, including our latest from the Oreo Wonder Vault, Swedish Fish Flavored Creme Oreo Cookies,” an Oreo spokesperson shared.

Girl Scouts Unveil 2 New S’mores-Inspired Cookies

Want s’more Girl Scout cookie flavors? Today is National S’mores Day and the Girl Scouts are introducing two new s’mores-inspired cookies to the mix.

The second is a sandwich-style cookie made of two crunchy graham cookies with a chocolate and marshmallowly filling.

Both versions of the ooey-gooey campfire favorite are coming in 2017.

The new cookies are a nod to “the adventurous spirit, love of the outdoors, and feeling of community synonymous with Girl Scouts,” Sylvia Acevedo, interim CEO of the Girl Scouts of the USA, said in a press release.

The campfire tradition of making s’mores was popularized by Girl Scouts as early as the 1920s, according to the organization. One of the first published recipes for s’mores was in a 1925 issue of Girl Scout Leader magazine under the name “Some More.”

The cookies are the first new addition to the Girl Scout cookie lineup since 2015 when Rah-Rah Raisins and two gluten-free cookies, Toffee-tastic and Trios, were unveiled.

The Girl Scouts announced the new flavors today on “Good Morning America” as the organization approaches the 100th anniversary of the first-known sale of Girl Scouts cookies.
