Amazon Web Services released a version of its Dash button designed to enable software developers to order cloud computing services.
Software developers may also chose to use the Dash button to connect to AWS IoT services.
But good luck getting one. Amazon CTO Werner Vogels said the new button sold out in just a few hours, though more will likely arrive in the future.
Amazon introduced the WiFi enabled dash buttons last year to allow people to order common household items like detergent and toilet paper from Amazon at, quite literally, the push of a button.
Instead of going to the AWS console to choose an option, a developer can do tasks with various AWS cloud tools without having to write code. And as the IoT market grows, such tools will become increasingly handy.
"This simple Wi-Fi device is easy to configure and designed for developers to get started with AWS IoT, AWS Lambda, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon SNS and many other Amazon Web Services without writing device-specific code," Amazon said.
Amazon said users can "code the button’s logic in the cloud to configure button clicks to count or track items, call or alert someone, start or stop something, order services or even provide feedback."
