People are excited about the new Amazon Go store.

The store uses cameras and sensors to determine what items customers have taken down from the shelves, eliminating the need for the typical check-out process. Amazon calls it “just walk out technology.”

That promise was apparently a bit too enticing for Seattle locals, who were eager to get into the store after a year of delay. Twitter users were taking pictures and posting photographs of the line that formed around the block.

The store — the first of its kind — is somewhat of a novelty. Though it is designed to make shopping easier by making getting in and out quicker, it’s likely the newness has attracted a bunch of gawkers.
