You probably know all about Amazon's Dash buttons , the little physical buttons that you can press to re-order more of a specific item. They're the lazy man's ultimate shopping device. Because who can be bothered spending more than the time it takes to press a button on buying toilet paper?
The Amazon Dash that you see in the photo above is not to be confused with the Dash buttons . The new Dash... umm, wand is a revamped version of the Dash wand that was previously only available for use with Amazon Fresh items.
Never heard of the Dash wand? You're not alone. Most people haven't. Amazon never made a big deal about it.

The new Dash wand, available today for $49.99 , is 50 percent smaller than the bulky original and now works for buying anything on Amazon.
There's a single button on the device that has two functions: press and hold to scan a product's barcode or press and hold and then say the name of the product you want to buy.
