One of the big on-line stores is now selling this device called a Dash Button.  Stick it up in your bathroom and when you look like you are out of blades you press the button - two days later a box shows up with new blades.  They sell them for coffee, laundry soap, and a list of other things.

Now imagine you had one of these next to the sink for all the different vendors - press it and two days later the latest brush, razor, seasonal scent or your favorite aftershave shows up at the door.  No more looking over the vendor sites - just push the button and product is on the way - not to mention bankrupcy.

Sure is a solution for those that can't/won't think ahead or have serious mobility issues and can't leave the house. For the rest just another solution to a nonexistent problem. Great marketing ploy though.

Superficially this is grist for the humor mill. I look deeper. We are being sold instant gratification without the need to talk to each other or even reach for a alcohol swipe before touching the shopping cart handle. Amazon Drone delivery for us and missiles for others. I fully expect a artificial insemination home package any day with people
going online to choose reproductive mates via brokers and 20 year support contracts.
Sorry, I'll stick with Phil's terrible 48 hour max turnover and Pyewacket's odorifous litter tray over a push button and robotic pet that emits Japanese accent purring.

Make sure to mount it high enough so the kids can't reach, or you COULD be bankrupt in a hurry. Smile

I've got one, for my cat's food. You can pick what it orders from a selection list made from Amazon. Not the greatest thing in the world but convenient.
