The Dash Wand can add products to a shopper's Amazon cart by voice and scan barcodes

With Amazon’s Dash Wand, shoppers can quickly add their favorite products to their Amazon shopping list by saying the item’s name into the device. If a shopper wants an exact item, they can instead scan the product’s barcode to add to their shopping list. The device does not take up a lot of room in a shopper’s pockets, making it a convenient tool to have if someone doesn’t want to type something into their smartphone or write it down. Beyond shopping, Amazon connected Alexa to the Dash Wand, making it a tiny remote control for all of the smart devices in a user’s home.

The Dash Wand sells for $20 on Amazon; however, a user then receives $20 of Amazon credit to put toward purchases after registering the device.
