But you know what's more convenient than doing your shopping online? Having smart devices do that shopping for you. Amazon today announced that its Dash Replenishment Program, through which connected appliances will automatically order physical goods when supplies are low, has added a new set of devices, including Nestlé's baby food dispenser and a trash-tracker that monitors your garbage can's incoming traffic.
Launched back in January of this year, Amazon's Dash Replenishment program builds on the company's Dash buttons, which are basically branded, one-touch ordering services for a user-defined shopping item. These can be programmed through the app or website to order more of a specific product when pressed, be it Tide laundry detergent or Bounty paper towels.
