Gadget of the Week – Amazon Dash
Published on April 28, 2015
Amazon has recently made your online shopping uber simple with the Amazon Dash gadget for your home. Simply say what you need or scan it to add items to your shopping list anywhere from home.
How does it work? Dash uses your Wi-Fi network to connect to your AmazonFresh account. From there, you can either a) Use its built in microphone to let Amazon know that you need to replace your detergent or cereal, or b) Point Dash at what you want, scan the item, and add it to your list.
Amazon is gearing this towards digital grocery shopping with their newest Amazon Fresh platform. Amazon Fresh promises same-day and early morning delivery of fresh groceries and everyday essentials so that you don't need to head to the grocery store for supplies if you don't have the time.
Amazon Dash is currently only available by invitation only, but we can expect to see Dash coming soon to a mass audience.
