The Wastecan i.Master Wesco is definitely much smarter than your trash can. It features an invisible infrared sensor at the top that senses when your hand is near, filled with stinky trash, and automatically opens the lid without the need for involvement from you other hand or your foot for that matter.

The fact that this trash can opens its greedy little mouth at your impending garbage deposit is undoubtedly cool, but don't be fooled by the photo—it does not allow you to shoot red laser beams out of the palm of your hands. And for the $430 price tag, it really ought to.
