From Amazon via Business Wire:
People buy a Brita system because they want to get cleaner, great-tasting water from any tap. But in the chaos of life, it can be easy to forget to keep that filter up-to-date.
Now, Brita and Amazon have teamed up to make keeping that Brita filter fresh virtually fool proof.
The new Wi-Fi-enabled Brita Infinity pitcher is equipped with a built-in counter that tracks the amount of water that passes through the pitcher’s filter. The pitcher itself will automatically order a new filter through Amazon Dash Replenishment when the old filter nears its capacity. This new connected pitcher with Amazon Dash Replenishment gives Brita owners exactly what they want – a new Brita filter on their doorstep at the time they need it.
When people buy the new Brita Infinity pitcher, they simply need to register on Brita.com/infinity, connect the pitcher to their home network and sign up for Amazon Dash Replenishment using their Amazon account. Then, the pitcher connects with the service to ensure automatic replacement filter orders are made when the filter nears its capacity – roughly 40 gallons of water.

In case you never thought a pitcher would include System Requirements, it’s here. An excerpt:
