Programmer hacks Amazon Dash Button to give $5 to the ACLU whenever he wants
In what feels like the first good use for an Amazon Dash Button, a programmer hacked his button to donate $5 to the ACLU whenever he wishes.
In a post published to Medium, Nathan Pryor detailed the process of building a custom charitable Dash Button, from writing a script that sends the money to designing its own official label. So, Pryor set out to build one.
With no donation API from the ACLU to work with, his wrote one that could automatically pull up the ACLU’s donation form and instantly enter his personal information and credit card number.
