The Internet of Things is here, and as more and more platforms become integrated with IoT applications, it's here to stay. New IoT services are popping up daily, and Amazon's Dash service makes ordering and re-ordering products as simple as pressing a button. However, for many makers, the IoT is a daunting and intimidating venture. Integrating familiar microcontroller functions with the unknown aspects of web integration is a big challenge. So Brian Carbonette created an awesome guide, along with an Arduino library for using the service with a web-connected Arduino such as the MKR1000. Check it out here.
It's a very neat project, and a great example of a seasoned maker using his skills to provide other DIY'ers with the ability to put together great IoT projects like this one!
