Silicon Valley Elites Now Trying To Put Bodegas Out Of Business - Twitter Erupts...

Two former Google employees are trying to make Bodegas a thing of the past with their startup, according to Fast Company. The startup -- called Bodega -- sets up unmanned five-foot wide pantry boxes in apartments, offices, dorms or gyms. The boxes contain products that are non-perishable. The Bodega app allows people to unlock the pantry box, while cameras powered with computer vision will register what has been taken so the person’s credit card can be automatically charged. Using Bodega means people won’t have to interact with their neighborhood bodega vendor, which would lower sales for the mom and pop stores.
