Google Supermarket

Gregor Rothfuss, a Google Maps senior engineer who lived in Zurich, Switzerland but now is based in New York, posted a picture of an article that says Google is placing a supermarket in their Zurich office to make life easier for Googlers in that office.

Truth is, I can't read that language but Gregor said in his caption of the picture of the story:

Google Zurich is building a supermarket right into the office because lazy. #0thworldproblems

I believe you can read the full story in German at and I guess you can use Google Translate to translate it for you.

Just from the pictures of this office, both the ones in this story and the ones I've seen over the years, it looks like an amazing place to work.

Gregor shared this picture on Google+.

I hope to get pictures of this Google Supermarket after it is built and share them here.

Update: So John Mueller of Google tells me this is a virtual supermarket where you scan items on a wall and it will be delivered to your home for you. You can see this in a photo on Google Maps.
