I'll pop into the shop and buy some things. I walk in and my phone buzzes, the store welcomes me - I've been checked in. I smile and confirm my location. I look around, there are no tills. Just me and my smartphone. I make my way around the store, I pick up an item I want and put it into my cart. everything syncs to my phone. It's all working. I'm done shopping. I look at my phone and with a swipe of my finger, I've paid and I'm done. I Walk out: a champion. I've done my part. My smartphone buzzes, i've been checked out. I am monitoring my spending in realtime. I decide to go into another store. My smartphone buzzes, I'm checked in. Repeat. I shop in a playground of your own making. So seamless, so easy. So, Carter.
I've heard the stories of the old days when our parents would stand in queues. I heard the strange stories of how they would stand in lines to buy stuff and in return the store would take their time and money. No, sir! not me! Not anymore! Welcome to the future. Welcome to Carter.
