H-E-B has just unveiled the checkout of the future at a few select stores in Texas for testing. It is absolutely incredible. Thanks to a new social media post, we get to see the setup for the new 'fast scan' technology. You can see exactly how the new system works in the TikTok video below thanks to TikTok user hurricane_katriina

The HEB that is featured in the video is located just outside of San Antonio in Schertz, Texas. HEB has confirmed to mysanantonio.com,  that the Fast Scan technology is currently in a pilot phase exclusively with the store's partners or employees. How does it work? You would personally scan all the items you put in your basket and when you check out. The weight of the basket would confirm that you scanned everything.  See the video below.

Do you feel this is a service that you would use? Let us know in the Facebook comments of this story.  According to the article, this is not the first time that HEB has introduced a new self-checkout technology.  They also did this in 2013.

During the pandemic, we started with HEB curbside and that gradually changed to home delivery. I don't go to HEB nearly as much as I used to. However, for this, I think, I would make at least one trip.
