Amazon isn’t just going to let Apple challenge its smart home supremacy. Hot on the heels of Apple’s announcement at WWDC, the Seattle-based company has just announced the Amazon Dash Wand, a device that lets you order with just a scan.
As we alluded to previously, this Wifi-enabled gadget has a barcode reader on one end, allowing you to scan everyday household items and food products for reordering when you’re running low. Furthermore — and here’s where Amazon is really undermining Apple — the Dash Wand has Alexa built-in, so you’ll still find recipes and do simple conversions with your voice. Apparently the Wand is even magnetic, so you can keep it handy on your fridge door or whatever other metallic surface you’d like to keep it on. Finally, as the cherry on the cake, Amazon will even throw in a $20 credit to your Amazon account once you activate the device, making it essentially free.
