Floating Trash Can / Trash Can

Floating Trash Can
Floating Trash Can

Floating Trash Can is different from traditional ones as it can prevent ants, cockroaches or any other insects by utilizing a simple magnetic levitation device. In the kitchen, food leftovers or some trashes that contain sugar can easily attract such insects once thrown into traditional trash can. The concept of Floating Trash Can is to solve this problem. The Floating Trash Can does not have any ground contact, thus insects are unable to enter the trash can.
