Amazon Dash is a new way to shop from home — if you're an AmazonFresh customer

Amazon is introducing a small barcode scanner that works in conjunction with your Amazon account, and when you scan a code or use your voice to describe a product it is added to your AmazonFresh shopping list.

Right now things are invitation only, but if you're interested you can head to the source link and have a closer look. You'll also find the sign up there if you were invited.

Amazon Dash lets you say it or scan it to get it, invitation only for now

It's for Amazon Fresh customers from California and Seattle, WA area...doesn't apply to us here in the midwest. :(

I love my Amazon but that ad made me think I need to make a Costco run. That's is where I would get the things I saw in the video.

I want this (or just a device that sends a shopping list to my phone) now!

This is another case of Amazon trying to sell a pointless piece of branded hardware. There is an Amazon app. You can scan barcodes in it. Amazon should be expanding the services it covers and adding functionality to the existing app instead.

I had an idea close to this. But it would have had an algorithm that tracked just how much you used something so it could reasonably predict when you needed to order more. It would also keep track of events that were coming up like birthdays and holidays and suggest items that you may want to stock up on. Like extra ice cream for birthdays or charcoal for cook-outs.
