If only you could walk into your favourite clothes store, pick the pieces you like, and sashay out. If only you could wave goodbye to those painful queues, especially those that lengthen during the weekends. Now, you can, and without setting off a store alarm. Now, your phone can make the payment with help from Amazon-backed ToneTag, which enables mobile payments through sound waves.
