Weird or Genius? Amazon Dash Buttons Deliver Products with One Tap
Tampons and laundry detergent at your fingertips
Well, you may never need to haul ass to the drugstore again. Amazon just launched a Amazon Dash, a system of wireless buttons that stick to your pantry, medicine cabinet, wall, wherever.
Here’s how it works: When you run out of, say, coffee, you simply press the branded button and Amazon will deliver your refill in two days. No need to make a mad dash to Target or search around on the Internet. All you have to do is pre-order the buttons ($5 each but they come with a credit for the same amount to your Amazon account). Oh, and you need to be a Prime member.
Currently, there are 100 products available (from Charmin and Bounty to Starbucks and Gerber) officially making midnight toilet-paper runs a thing of the past.
