Does infinite scroll affect SEO?

Has anyone implemented Infinite Scroll on their sites? Any observations on SEO impact? It seems like more websites are starting to pick it up. It seems to be a better option for UX but what about SEO? When it's implemented, the next article dynamically loads and switches to a new URL as the user browses down the page. So I am assuming it's treated as an entirely separate page.

It does lead to a better user experience, however Google's Martin Splitt had to remind SEOs and site owners that Google bot doesn't scroll through pages. When infinite scrolling is implemented on a web page it can cause issues with how the content is indexed in Google Search.
