Amazon s Dash buttons are typically used to order household staples and groceries at the push of a button — installed around the house they offer frictionless consumerism at its finest.
But since the company launched a programmable IoT version last year, Dash buttons have the potential to do much more.
One enterprising programmer has reimagined it as an easy way to donate to the American Civil Liberties Union.
Nathan Pryor says that the idea came from a friend who wished there was an ACLU Dash button one could push to donate any time I read about the latest offense from Trump.
He diligently ordered the customizable IoT Dash button and got to work on the coding.
There is no donation API for the ACLU so Pryor had to write his own script, which would invisibly load up the donation page and fill out all his details including a pre-set $5 donation amount.
