Robots like this one may soon make sure your favorite snack is in store

Technological tools are often associated with convenience. We can use them to make things happen faster or more easily. Take for example, shopping. The experience of buying something is now much more convenient than it was before many of the gadgets we have came into existence.

Described as “the world's first fully autonomous shelf, auditing and analytics solution,” Tally is a robot that makes it easier for grocery stores to keep track of their stock.

In a video, the robot is shown gracefully gliding through a supermarket. Text surrounding it suggests its activity as if checks for items that have the wrong price, are running low, or have gone completely out of stock. The idea: let the human workers focus more on creating a quality customer service experience instead of spending so much time keeping tabs on a store's stock.
