The GeniCan is a device that attaches to your trash can and scans the barcodes of items being discarded, using the information to create a shopping list.

The device can be mounted to the trash can using a magnetic panel. It is designed to work with trash cans of both square and rectangular shapes and plastic and metal finishes. The device can either be powered by a cable hook-up or an internal battery. The battery is estimated to last for seven days depending on the exact extent of usage.

How often have you run out of something and thrown it out, only to forget to add it to your shopping list? It's a pretty annoying situation to be in, and one that the GeniCan ensures to banish once and for all.
