Incredibly, the Moby Mart store operates 24/7 and all without any humans manning the shop.

Moby Mart offers basic groceries, such as milk, bread, fruit and coffee, which are only available to customers which have downloaded the Moby Mart app.

Customers connect their card to the app so that Moby Mart technology can scan their purchase and charge them automatically.

The app even allows customers to call the store to their location. Could this be the future of grocery shopping?
