On a small scale it may consist of a mechanical arm interfaced with some kind of front-end GUI where target user can select a product he/she wants to buy and the arm can go and pick up the product from its location- kind of a vending machine on larger scale. Arm has a small camera/sensor to scan QR codes on the product. System has inbuilt ability to scan and remember where something is kept. And when asked for will again confirm by means of the QR code if it is in fact the asked product, pick it up and collect it in some kind of "cart".|
