Amazon ‘Dash’ Button

AmazonPushI was quite taken by this article about the Amazon Dash Button. The concept is simple you have product buttons in the cupboard or fridge where they would normally be and when your out of the product you click the button and the next day they are delivered.

Amazon do this through Amazon Prime which costs an annual fee, but I wonder what my fridge would look like, one week it’s Tesco’s Cheese the next Asda’s. Obviously this Dash button will be more for branded items, but Heinz or Branston, how many buttons will be in my cupboard! do the buttons need new batteries each year?

Whatever Next

If any of our members are working on this project, perhaps they would like to give us some more detail.

The idea that Barbie is IP addressable could lead to some interesting hacks. Will we have invasion of the Barbie Dolls with hundreds of interconnected over proportioned toys. Could this be the ultimate blonde ambition!
