Intelligent Trash Talk

Innovation only makes sense if it's in sync with your needs. There are everyday actions that would be much easier, if they could be automated. From automatic garage door openers to sensor based faucets. One less thing we would have to do. That's why we found the sensor based trash cans so appealing. Maybe it's because you don't need to touch the lid to prop it open; yes, there are foot operated mechanical ones but this is a technology blog!

Multi-Sense by simplehuman, is an adaptive sensor technology designed to keep the sensor can in sync with your tasks. It's responsive to your actions, modulating the sensor range and automatically changing behavior, so it always does the right thing at the right time. Learn about ready mode, task mode and stay-open mode. It reacts and adapts to your behavior, so it won't open unexpectedly or close before you've finished your task. It's a cleaner, easier way to manage your trash — very sensible.

The i.Master is the trash can with a brain! Infra-red technology is added to the Kickmaster Wesco bin to create a kitchen bin that opens when your hand approaches. Perfect for hand-free use - quick and easy. It combines "modern infrared-technology with the classic Kickmaster-design and thus offers highest convenience and easy handling." What this means is that when a person's hand approaches the top of the bin, its infrared sensors are activated to automatically open the lid. It is indeed pretty convenient. No more touching dirty garbage lids.
