Pressing Buttons

The Amazon Dash, a consumer goods ordering service, was introduced on March 31, 2015. It is a small electronic device designed to make ordering products easier and faster. Each device contains an embedded button and is emblazoned with the name of an often ordered product. Users can configure each button to order a specific product and quantity, via the user’s account, and mount the buttons, using adhesive tape or a plastic clip, to locations where they use the products. Pressing the button will send a Wi-Fi signal to automatically order new stock of whatever product the button is configured to order.
