It’s called Bruno, and it’s a connected trash can. You may wonder why your trash can needs to be connected, but let us assure you this is a really cool product, but not for its “connected features.” In fact, Bruno is more than a can, it’s also a vacuum. See that opening at the bottom? Well, it sucks stuff in. So the way you use Bruno is that you broom around your house, but instead of bending over with a dust pan and walking over to the can, you just sweep it right up to Bruno, who’ll then suck it up. Sensors on the inside alert you when you need to change the collection bag, and it stores a bunch of empty bags so you don’t have to go around looking for new ones when it’s time to take the trash out. And of course, it is a trashcan, a motion sensing lid opens up for full hands-free operation. It’s battery operated, so you can move it around the house, and it won’t need a charge for around 30 days!
It’s a decent looking trashcan with innovative features that amply justify the $159 asking price, on their fully-funded Kickstarter campaign. But don’t wait until it hits retail shelves, because the price then goes up to $229.
