How to Borrow a Shared Umbrella In Shekou, Shenzhen

on 10/04/2017 - 09:06 am

You may have seen, or at least heard about, shared umbrellas popping up around China back in April. They seemed to have appeared overnight, hanging on fences and railings around the city.

Like MoBikes, E Umbrellas didn't have docking stations. Instead, each umbrella had its own lock for which you could get the combination by scanning the QR code.

There was a lot of hype this morning about a new self-help supermarket that opened in Hangzhou today. According to an article published by Shekou News today, in this new store, there are no cashiers. Customers enter the store by scanning their phone at metro station-style turnstiles which keeps track of who they are. Then they're body-scanned on the wait out and charged automatically.

Watch this video of the experience. It's in Chinese but you'll get the point.
