If you’re waiting for your phone to read your mind–think: I want cookies and sit back as they arrive at your front door by drone–it shouldn’t be too far off. Amazon Flow is a new feature inside its mobile shopping app that lets users scan items in their home using a smartphone’s camera and quickly order the goods online. Instead of taking a photo of an item or scanning a barcode, Flow recognizes items via their shape, size, color, box text, and general appearance. By simply holding your iPhone up to a row of items on your shelf, the camera will place every recognizable item in your Amazon cart. Considering how much trouble 1-click shopping has gotten me into, this can’t be good for my wallet.
