Panasonic Japan tested a cashier robot designed to calculate the total purchases, care of the payment up to wrap the items in plastic. "Regirobo," a cashier robot being tested in Lawson stores in which the Japanese electronics company collaborated to test the new technology.

Buyers can put items in a special basket after pasting in the product barcode reader that is in the basket. Then, put the basket in a designated place at the checkout.
And the total price to be paid will appear and buyers can pay with cash, credit card or electronic money. Meanwhile, the bottom of the basket will be opened and its contents immediately into the plastic bag that were ready to picked up by the buyers.
