At ZRH: Self-Checkout Supermarket

We wandered around the Zurich Airport train station, killing time before our departure.

We noticed that the large Migros market is advertising a self-checkout system, complete with a display of scanners to acquire via a credit card.

Brian grabbed a brochure in German and Kathy will translate it at some point. It's clear that technology is advancing apace in Switzerland, notwithstanding traffic cops directing traffic at busy intersections.

The Mickey D's down the street from our hotel apparently has customers making their own orders on a touchscreen. This may not be the best time for employees in our food industry to be demanding significant wage increases
