Smart Trash can / trash can

Smart Trash can

Did you ever see a full trash can with no one to clean, or even some people still throw garbage into it? This trash can has a sensor inside and the lid will gradually decline with the increase of garbage inside until it closes. Meanwhile, the color of the lid will change when it closes, which makes it quicker for dustman to recognize and clean it.
