The Amazon Dash is a WiFi and voice-enabled barcode scanner that lets people add items to a shopping list.
To promote its AmazonFresh grocery service, e-commerce giant Amazon has unveiled a new gadget that lets people add items to their shopping list by scanning the barcode or simply saying it into the device.
Amazon Dash is a Wi-Fi and voice-enabled barcode scanner designed to make shopping quick and easy from the comforts of one’s home.
Say, you’re running out of milk or need to restock on a few things in your cupboard. All you need to do is say “milk” into the microphone of the device or point it at the items left in your cupboard to scan the barcode of those items. The items are then automatically added to a shopping list. Dash recognizes millions of items from both AmazonFresh and from Amazon.com, so it’s not limited to just groceries.
When the user is ready to buy their items, they can view their Amazon shopping list on their smartphones or computers, purchase the items, and schedule delivery.
AmazonFresh is currently only available in Southern California, San Francisco and Seattle. Amazon Dash is currently free on a trial basis with a limited number of members. Interested Amazon shoppers can sign up for one at the website.
