Retailers will not adopt this unless it makes checking out more efficient for the store, cuts costs, or they have no choice due to overwhelming demand. That's the sticker, if the stores have to pay for new equipment for only a small minority of customers, they won't do it.
So, it will be interesting to see how these do.
