Looks like a system which is very open for fraudulent transactions , someone just as to pick up a item and stay near you on exit. nearly as good as the contactless card.

Well, it's due to go live in early 2017 in some US states, so it will be interesting to see how well the developers have covered the ability to fool the system.

It will log the Mac address of the phone/device so it will then allocate the object to that, so unless they are holding hands it should figure it out. But I bet they have a sign saying Random checks of purchases will be made. Not dissimilar to Tesco scan and shop. All in their T&C's.

Near field relies more on a close handshake but I am sure still relies on Mac address?
