LAX Airport News 2021 - New Mashgin Self Checkout

VIDEO |✈️  LAX Airport News 2021 - Mashgin Self-Checkout Invites Passengers to Try New Technology at the Food Court in Terminal 6.

Would You Use This Ground-Breaking New Self-Checkout Technology?

I'm a bit of a gadget geek, and occasionally during my travels, I come across some innovative technology. That was the case at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) recently.

I went to purchase some food items in the food collection area, I think it was in terminal six, and there was no cashier. Instead, I was directed to this futuristic-looking Mashgin self-checkout and the little sign instructed me to "place items here."

Well, within a second of me placing the items down, all three were detected on the checkout screen. I was really fascinated by this, so the rebel in me wanted to see if I could fool the system. So I grabbed both a Pepsi and a Diet Pepsi, placed them both in the checkout area, and sure enough, it instantly knew the difference. I did the same thing with bottles of orange and lemonade, and again, it correctly identified both items, even though the packaging was the same.

Turns out, whatever I put down, it nailed it, every time. Two bottles of tea, two sets of sandwiches, nothing I did fooled the system. I even covered up some barcodes and the Mashgin POS still recognized everything! Have you come across this technology before?

The company behind it is called MashGin, a very weird name, but apparently, they're using some kind of AI wizardry, because their website confirms you can "place any item anyway," and it will always detect it correctly. Obviously this technology has the ability to greatly speed up the checkout process, so it'll be really interesting to see how it rolls out in the future. Were you aware of this LAX airport news?
