Amazon has announced the Dash Button

By Katie Kennedy

Imagine you are getting ready to fill your washing machine with all your of dirty clothes and when you are ready to close the door and fill up the detergent, you suddenly realize your detergent bottle is completely empty. A sense of panic washes over you and then the doorbell rings. You go to the door and the FedEx man is standing there with a package. Bewildered as to what you had just received, you immediately tear open the package and find your favorite laundry detergent, just in the nick of time! This is the future of Amazon.

Today, Amazon announced the Dash Button.

The Dash Button is a one-touch way to re-order common things in your home, along with the Dash Replenishment Service, a wildly futuristic program that’s designed to automatically and intelligently keep you from ever running out of things again.

The original Dash was launched in limited capacity almost exactly a year ago—it’s the most unremarkable magic wand ever made. You can scan the barcode on your empty milk carton, or tap a button and say “milk” into the device, and Amazon will automatically ship you a new carton of milk with free two-day delivery.

Your house will soon be able to replace the items you use everyday, when you need them most. Each Dash Button is linked to a certain brand. When you are nearly out, you push the button and like magic it appears in two days.

The next big thing is the "Dash Replenishment Service" or DRS. The aim of DRS is to completely remove you from the ordering process.

It’s a simple cloud service that enables anything with an Internet connection to automatically re-order something for you.

Soon the stress of going to the grocery store and deciding what it is that you really need, will be removed. Amazon is working towards making your life easier. The advancement in technology is just over the horizon.
