Amazon's Competition for the Dash Buy Button

More buttons in the home for retail.  Not sure how far this will go without Amazon's marketing muscle.  Will homes be outfitted with standard needs buttons?  Be commissioned to include an array of buttons as a loyalty or subscription play?  What would it need to get you to display an array of buy buttons on your frig?  I can see some possibilities.
