National Basketball Association (NBA) giants, the Boston Celtics, have fitted their home arena with new Amazon ‘Just Walk Out’ technology.
It has been announced that the TD Garden, home of the NBA’s Boston Celtics and the NHL’s Boston Bruins, has had two checkout-free retail stores with Amazon’s new ‘Just Walk Out’ technology fitted in a ‘first of its kind’ move.
Delaware North, the owners of TD Garden, this week announced the installation of the new technology, which uses an electronic gate, computer vision technology and a system of sensors which allows customers to purchase items without checking out. Delaware North described the installation as a ‘first of its kind in the city of Boston’.
Amy Latimer, the president of TD Garden said: “We are always looking to leverage technology to bring fast, easy and touch-free amenities to our guests, and we are excited to collaborate with Amazon to use their Just Walk Out technology in these MRKT stores,”
“These stores will deliver a fast, frictionless experience, helping to eliminate lines and get our guests back to the action on the court and the ice faster.”
