Set to be officially unveiled at CES 2020 in Las Vegas next month, the Rinspeed MetroSnap vehicle boasts a modular design, enabling it to double as a standalone store store or even a local postal office. This means Amazon can simply drive one of these to a designated parking spot and use it as a package station during the busy holiday season for returns.
Forget traditional vending machines, as they can be quite cumbersome to transport on a whim. The MetroSnap can be loaded with goods and be used as a fully automated store of sorts. Customers would simply pay for the item and the appropriate slot would open up, allowing them to retrieve the purchased good(s). Whatever the case may be, we’ll update you when the actual prototype is shown to the public at CES in Las Vegas, which begins on January 7, 2020.
