What is it? Rubbish is so boring, isn’t it? The GeniCan rights this wrong, adding a touch of garbage glamour to your life. It scans each item as you throw it away, adding everything to a shopping list to help you replenish stocks, and can also send you coupons and arrange grocery deliveries. When’s it due? September 2015. Why are we excited? It almost seems unnecessary, but in a very cool Tony Stark kind of way. Although this is probably how Skynet will get started. Note to self: do not throw knives into GeniCan-enabled bins.
