What is Amazon Build It and what can you preorder?

With Amazon Build It, the American giant is launching its own version of Kickstarter or Indiegogo. This platform is intended for conceptual products that it plans to produce itself; provided enough people pre-order the concepts. Build It, will be an extension of the company’s Day One Editions initiative.

What is the Amazon Build It program?

A few years ago, Amazon launched Day One Editions, a program designed to offer first-generation hardware, like Echo Frames, that might not be ready or suitable for a global release. Today, Amazon Build It offers a new way to measure consumers’ interest in smart health connected objects that they want to develop.

According to Amazon, if a concept reaches its pre-order goal within 30 days, it will be produced. Fans will be among the first to get their hands on the concept. You will only be charged if and when the product ships. If the pre-order goal is not met, the product will not be produced, and you will not be charged.

Thus, for a limited time, you will receive a special price blocked during the pre-order. This promotion will be available for 30 days.

Can you pre-order Amazon Build It concepts now?

Amazon launched the Build It concept on February 17, 2021. When it launches, it offers three Alexa-enabled devices that you can pre-order. A smart sticky note printer, a smart scale and a smart cuckoo clock.

This smart sticky note printer prints your shopping lists, to-do lists, reminders and calendar events. It uses thermal technology, so it never needs ink or toner. Amazon said the paper rolls are easy to refill. So, you just have to ask Alexa to print something; even puzzles to start.
