Amazon has unveiled a new gadget, the Amazon Dash stick for scaning, Dash has a built-in LED scanner and a voice recording function. The device itself connects up to one's home Wi-Fi network to enable the voice search and its put-items-on-list capabilities: You just have to talk, or point, your way to a brand-new shopping list. Unfortunately, since the device currently only works in conjunction with an AmazonFresh list, that does limit its usefulness a bit. Fresh is still very limited in availability with the service only available in parts of California and Washington. "Every member of the family can use Dash to easily add items to your AmazonFresh shopping list. Keep it on your kitchen counter or hang it on the refrigerator. Did your kids just eat the last of the cereal? Conveniently refill and restock your home's everyday essentials, and have fun doing it. Dash connects to your home Wi-Fi network and works directly with your AmazonFresh account. Say or scan items into your Dash, and then view the list on your desktop or mobile device to purchase and schedule delivery."
