Reality Check

  • Claim:

    "Get repetitive tasks done with just a single button press"

  • Reality:

    Amazon has allowed usage of their very popular Dash Button. The goButton makes applicable use of an already existing technology so that every day consumers can click a button instead of the normal routine.

Something To Think About

  • Claim:

    "goButton saves you time"

  • Reality:

    The premise of this project is based around the claim that this will save you time. There will be time required up front to set up the function of each button, but the time saved by just pressing a button to do a pre-determined function has extremely high potential.

  • Claim:

    " Unlike many Bluetooth-based smart buttons, you don’t need to have your smartphone nearby for the button to work."

  • Reality:

    The independence of the button designed by Amazon, does allow usage without relying on any other devices.

  • Claim:

    "Setup is easy: just use the goButton app, or the web portal!"

  • Reality:

    The set up and "easy" function for the end user is the most crucial element of this project. The ability to quickly set up a function and change when necessary is dependent on the Local App that will be downloadable on for IOS and Android as well as dependent on the browser based UI. Visybl, the company who founded this project, have an already working app for an asset management platform.

Something To Think About

The stickers are able to be replaced, just keep in mind that when you re-purpose a button, that will require a new sticker if it has been previously labeled for something specific. This will also require a higher cost.

  • Claim:

    "goButtons with CUSTOM LABELS!"

  • Reality:

    Customization is a helpful addition to the goButton campaign. Only one or two words can fit on each button, and there is no customization of the color or style for each button. The one or two word customization potentially covers the majority of functions for the end user.

Bottom Line

The goButton is a product that uses the technology of a very well established entity, Amazon, to bring a very practical level of function to every day use. The professionalism and quality of supporting websites and company information allow for an in depth view into who you are potentially backing. The technology exists, the function could save a lot of time, and convenience could be taken to another level.
