Bruno is House Cleaning Brilliance Beth Snyder May 11, 2015 Extras Fairly often in my life I’ve run across a product that makes me want to kick myself because I didn’t think of it first and I just know whoever did is going to be able to retire early because of their simple brilliance. Poubelle LLC, the creators of the Bruno Smart Can, are some of those people. Looks like a regular kitchen trash can, doesn’t it? It is, but it’s oh so much more! Bruno has a slot at the bottom that is actually a vacuum, so when you’re done sweeping you don’t have to deal with trying to get that last little line of dirt that refuses to go into the dustpan. Just sweep your dirt over to Bruno, and the suction automatically starts to whisk away your mess. No bending, no crouching, no doing that awkward maneuver where you try to juggle the broom and the dustpan… Just gone. It’ll even suck up food scraps and other debris. If that was all Bruno did, it would be worth the price. But there’s more! Bruno will also remind you to take out the trash on the appropriate day, and it will also let you know when you’re getting low on bags and need to order more. You can either use the special Bruno Bags, or it will accept regular kitchen garbage bags as well. It has a motion-sensing lid, so when your hands are full all you have to do is wave whatever you’re carrying over the lid and it’ll open for hands-free disposal of trash. Bruno is available in five different colours to match virtually any decor: arctic white, slate gray, harbor blue, urban red, or stainless. It has an integrated charging and filtration system, and will run about 30 days on a single charge. Currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, Bruno is definitely going to become a product you can buy. There are a little over three weeks left in the funding period, and they’ve already received almost twice their goal. You can still get in on it, though. A pledge of at least $159.00 US will get you one Bruno Smartcan along with a 30-day supply of Bruno Bags. They expect to ship in October of this year. Source: Gizmodo Share This With The World!
