Inspired by a Frisk ad, Japanese inventor who goes by the username ‘minokur’ has hacked a trashcan so that it that catches trash.

The ‘Smart Trashbox’ is a battery-operated trashcan that’s been customized with a software, electronics and the help of a Microsoft Xbox Kinect.

It detects and predicts where your trash would land, and catches it precisely—so you don’t have to clean up trash you’ve thrown around in your room anymore.
