Meet Bruno, the world’s first “smart” garbage can.
Here’s the deal: Bruno is a Wi-Fi-enabled bin that links up with your smartphone. He’ll send you push notifications when he’s getting full, when it’s time to put the garbage out for collection and when he’s running low on trash bags. He also has a powerful vortex vacuum at his base and can suck up any crumbs you accidentally spill when cleaning off the cutting board. In other words, he’s like your neat-freak, nudging mother in plastic robot form.
As with all good things in life, Bruno is currently in preorder. When he hits the market this fall, he’ll cost $229, but you can claim him now on Kickstarter for a mere $139.
