Amazon Dash Buttons are going to be life changing! Imagine you are suddenly out of washing powder. Don’t you think it’s too cumbersome to go online (let alone go all the way to a store!), open Amazon, search for the brand of your choice, click on ‘add to cart’ and go through the hassle of online payment?
Wouldn’t it be so neat if your washing powder arrived at your doorstep with just a click of a button? And no, not on your smart phone! That button will be present exactly where you keep your washing powder! Thinking how this is going to work?
Amazon has come up with a life altering invention – the Amazon Dash Button!
All you need to do is press the Dash Button and voilà! Washing powder at your doorstep! These $5 buttons lie dormant until you press them. Pressing the button activates them and connects them to your wifi.
