You’ve always wanted to connect everything in your house to the internet, right? Well, it’s your lucky day!

Meet the internet-connected Brita water jug. It’s one of the first devices to integrate with Amazon Dash, so it can order its own replacement filters whenever it’s time for a new one without you needing to do anything.

The new jug, which costs $44.99, connects to your Wi-Fi network and tracks water use to determine when it’s time to buy a new one. There’s not that much more to say, except that the idea is kind of both ridiculous and awesome all at once — I’m always forgetting to order new filters, but there’s a good reason Brita’s monthly subscription exists.

All you need to do to get that new water pitcher setup is connect it to your Wi-Fi using your Amazon account and boom, your water jug will spend your money for you.
