Do you hate telling your kids/partner/roommate to take out the trash? Bruno, the world's first smart trashcan, will do it for you (and also eliminate your dustpan in the process).
Bruno, which was successfully funded on Kickstarter, has alerts for annoying trash-related issues: when you're low on bags (and has a space to store them—right in the lid), when it's trash day. And it's not just a trashcan with an app, but it also has a vacuum feature where you just sweep debris into a hole in the base and it's sucked up into the bag.
It costs about the same as a nicer stainless can, and is available for preorder and October 2015 shipping.
