Brian Dipert has taken a look Inside the Amazon Dash Button. If you haven’t seen these before it is a little IOT device that is connected to your Amazon account and will order you some new products with the touch of a button. The design is battery operated and is small enough to be stuck where it could be pressed as soon as you realize you are out of something. Gone are the grocery lists or the notes on the fridge. Just check your mailbox in a few days and your daily staples that you ordered with your finger will be there. The device is basically free but there is actually quite a bit of tech inside.

“The Amazon Dash appears to be based on a Broadcom WICED (Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices) reference design module. Combine the Wi-Fi IC and the microcontroller into one packaged device, by the way, and you end up with the USI (Universal Scientific Industrial) WM-N-BM-09 WICED module, which forms the foundation of the $19 Spark Photon development kit.”
