Bruno, Eat My Dust

Bruno, the smart trash can.

Some people like to put off sweeping for as long as they can.

It’s an activity I’d avoid if I could, but it’s something I prefer over going from furniture to furniture, from knick-knack to knick-knack, dusting each and every one of them. Only, when it’s time to sweep the dust into the dustpan, I don’t like to bend down.

Besides, the finest of the motes are difficult to capture. But Bruno, a combination of a trash can and a vacuum cleaner, may ease the pain of the chore.

With a broom, usher the dirt pile into an aperture at its base. Switch on the suction. In no time, at all, it’ll devour the last bits of coffee grounds.

The bin has a built-in storage alcove for garbage bags, and a motion-sensitive lid to boot, so you don’t have to touch it. When it’s almost full or when its stock of liners is running low, it’ll alert you on your smartphone. It has a battery life of about 30 days.

  1. Oh. How clever. As most technological revolutions.
    They’ve put the opening at the bottom.
    i’m impressed.
    (Not too keen on the brand name Bruno, which is one of my many aliases)
    Hope you’re well.
    Be good
    Brian. (aka… dust-bin)
