Big button can be programmed to do anything

Getting a computer to automate tasks isn’t actually that difficult — it simply requires a formula that tells it to perform a function if certain criteria is true. This is something picked up by the online service IFTTT (If This Then That), which enables web users to connect multiple web services to automatically carry out tasks. Aiming to take this functionality into the physical world, bttn is a large, internet-connected button that can be configured for almost any use imaginable.
