Amazon Reinvents Grocery Shopping

screen-shot-2014-04-04-at-8-28-07-pmAmazon announces Dash, a home barcode scanner and microphone.

Dash is a newfangled WiFi shopping accessory that it’s offering for free to a limited number of AmazonFresh users (currently beta-ing in southern California, San Francisco, and Seattle) . Dash, a roughly 6-inch-long plastic wand, includes a laser scanner and a microphone for voice search, either of which will let you add items to your AmazonFresh shopping list. It connects via Wi-Fi to computers or mobile phones, from which you can actually view the list and order the items.

Simply scan the barcode of the item you need to replace/reorder, or speak into the microphone, and viola! It’s in your cart.

IOE is almost almost here folks. Get ready. It’s gonna be fun.
