Things We Found On The Net Today: Dash Cart from Amazon, Sqirl Jam, & Art Museums That Got PPP Loans

Amazon is rolling out grocery carts that let shoppers skip checkout lines, bag their groceries and walk out
Each cart is equipped with cameras that use computer vision to identify items as they’re placed in bags inside the cart, and a built-in scale to weigh them if necessary. For items like fresh produce, shoppers type in the item’s four-digit code and quantity on the display, which registers the weight and price. The cart is also equipped with a coupon scanner that applies any rebates to the shopper’s order. The carts are designed for small- to mid-sized grocery trips, where shoppers might leave the store with one or two bags.
These Dash Carts are coming to Amazon's Woodland Hills super market still slated to open some time this year.
