The innovation machine that is Amazon continues on, with the internet giant late last week announcing a new device that will make on-line ordering even easier for some of its customers.
Amazon Dash can be seen as a waypoint between manual ordering on a computer and an even more automated future. It is a wand-like device with a LED scanner and voice recognition capabilities, and connects to another computer via Wi-Fi.Part of the vision of the “Internet of Things” concept was that refrigerators might sense when you were running low on milk, triggering an automatic order to replenish that and any other needed items. That was well before Amazon Fresh came around, by the way, but some similar entities would have had to be created to provide the delivery service.
