Amazon Dash: The Magic Wand That Helps You NOT Run Out of ANYTHING

A few weeks ago, Amazon unveiled the Dash, a handheld Wi-Fi magic wand/wrench-looking thingy that helps you keep your AmazonFresh shopping list (consisting of oatmeal, toilet paper, and the like…) up-to-date for-ev-vuur. The handheld Dash device — which is roughly the size of a Nintendo Wii-Mote controller — comes housed with a barcode scanner and a microphone, letting you either scan or say what item you’re running low on without needing to leave your garage, pantry and/or kitchen. Anything you add becomes automatically added to your Amazon or AmazonFresh account, so this stick of magic works as long as it recognizes the item AND Amazon offers it. It starts of easy enough, but as of right now, it still seems that you’ll still have to confirm payment and delivery schedule from the Amazon webpage via browser of something like that…

And then, well, that’s pretty much it.  Should you reside in Southern California, San Francisco, or Seattle, the only three areas currently served by AmazonFresh, then your groceries, toiletries, or whatever else, get delivered to your door the NEXT DAY — at least according to the promotional video above, but we know how accurate those things are. Convenient, eh? As of now, sign-ups for Amazon Dash are invite only, but if you’re fortunate enough to know a person who knows a person who then knows ANOTHER person, you can try to sign up here.
