Amazon is ready to make its next gadget, and it’s letting consumers help choose.

The tech giant introduced a new program Wednesday called Build It, where Amazon will present concepts for devices and leave it to shoppers to choose whether they want it built by preordering.

When a concept hits a set preorder goal within 30 days, Amazon will create the device and consumers will receive it at a special price. If it doesn’t make the goal, the product won’t get built and shoppers won’t be charged for the pre-order.

Amazon has three gadgets consumers can choose:

Smart sticky note printer. It supports Alexa, allowing users to print out sticky notes like shopping lists with just your voice. You can also print other items like to-do lists or even puzzles. The printer uses thermal technology instead of ink or toner. It’s priced at $89.99.
