The Infrared Trash Can
If you want a truly Jetsons-esque trashcan, or you just can’t bear the thought of your hand going anywhere near your refuse, buy yourself an infrared trash can. These trash cans detect your hand a few inches away and automatically open. They look futuristic and keep your hands clean; they’re also much less obtrusive than the standard foot pedal-activated trash cans. They’re great for around the home or in a setting like a doctor’s or dentist’s office where biohazardous materials are dealt with and putting your hands amongst them really is a matter of life and death.
