Panasonic’s New Checkout Machine Will Also Bag Your Items

Self-service checkouts are not new in our grocery stores, but Panasonic has improved them in Japan, with a basket system that can detect the items you’re placing inside and then bag them up automatically. The only thing it doesn’t do is ask whether you prefer paper or plastic.

It is called “Regirobo” and it aims to make shopping easier than ever. After you scan your items, the bottom of the basket slides out, while your goods to gently fall into a bag underneath. The basket then slides away from you, so you can pick up the bag and leave. Simple, and it makes less work for humans. Though it only seems practical for small orders that can fit in a basket or two.

For now, Regirobo is only in a single store opposite Panasonic’s headquarters in Osaka. But if it proves a success, the company will have a wider roll-out in 2018. You are looking at the future of bagging. Sorry bag-people, the robots are coming for your jobs too.
