Make something happen on the internet.  Adafruit are not talking about putting up a video of your daschund standing on a vacuum cleaner and hoping that it will go viral.  Adafruit are talking about pressing a big, rewarding button and having your Photon order a pizza, text a loved one, or dial your missing phone.

The Internet Button from Particle has four pre-soldered buttons that can interact with the Internet via the Particle.  It uses on-board LEDs to display data or alerts and there's no coding required.

Comes ready to go - with a Particle Photon, a USB-micro cable, as well as a removable plastic cover.

    Found this to be a fast way to start playing with the Photon and show off some of the features. (Posted on 1/08/2016)

    This is a great little device for starting to hack around with an IoT device. I had a little trouble initially claiming the device to my account. I had to dig around in forums but there's plenty of help to be found. My understanding is that this process is _normally_ much more straight-forward and user-friendly than I experienced.
