I was looking for that famous pizza-button example for an article lately. The one I used some years ago in presentations on the Internet of Things. It was a marketing campaign by Red Tomato done in 2012.
It turned out that this invention is done over and over again. I found this one from 2013 And the latest edition is a more complex version, with functions as choosing the taste. It was featured on Mashable in March this year. And it ‘s unclear if this is also a real button. Of course it has versions in the app-store.
And now I read an article on the Internet of Things before it was called like that, from 1995. The internet had just entered the consumer area. And the pizza-button was there as concept too.
So maybe it is time to replace the Internet Fridge meme with the Pizza-button meme from now…
