We've all had that moment when we would rather throw a piece of garbage into the waste bin instead of getting up to do it, and while we often miss the target, this inventive new Smart Trash Can by Minoru Kurata, is fully equipped to move around in order to catch any items thrown in the air.

This one-of-a-kind trash can device is designed with some amazing hi-tech features, which allow it to use sensor-activated abilities to rotate around and detect any object or waste material that may be in the air. This clever robotic device is a fantastic step ahead for the development of ordinary kitchenware items, by turning a simple functioning device into something extremely extraordinary.

This Smart Trash Can even won an award at the Japan Media Arts Festival, and will surely attract anyone interested in turning their mundane household items into something hi-tech.
