Autonomous retail startup Inokyo’s first store feels like stealing
Inokyo is building autonomous retail stores by using perception algorithms and ceiling mounted cameras to understand exactly who and what are in stores, how customers are interacting and automate checkout. Retail is a $26 Trillion industry with razor slim margins and constant competition for customers while labor costs prohibits improvement in price and experience. Automation provides an unfair advantage to any store.
The process is streamlined to create a frictionless entry, shop effortlessly, and checkout with a terminal that is backwards compatible. Inokyo was built by an experienced team in research, engineering and design expertise from Carnegie Mellon.
