Trash cans are something that everybody needs. It is inevitable that we will need to throw things away, but our containment centers for rubbish (fancy phrase for trash cans) will need to do more than just nom on yesterday’s orange chicken. With these six geeky trash cans, you’ll be more than prepared for any style-associated crisis that may come about. They are also the perfect place to hide a body. Not that you would ever need to hide a body.
1. Trash Can That Scurries To Catch Your Garbage
We all know that your lanky arms are terribly uncoordinated, and that there’s no way you’re going to get that empty Gatorade bottle into that trash can. There is, however, a solution. Cut your arms to make them shorter. There is also a less painful solution: get this trash can. It moves to catch the stuff that you throw, and you’ll never have to get up out of your chair to pick up garbage again! Yeah! Laziness prevails once again, thanks to the brilliance of technology.
2. 8-Bit Trash Can
This 8-Bit Trash Can looks like something that would be implemented into Minecraft to prevent the virtual pollution of your tiny, tiny virtual world. The only things you would need are some virtual metal, virtual tools, and virtual empathy for the state of the environment, of which I virtually have none.
3. R2-D2 Trash Can
You have turned my childhood hero… into a trash can. How could you be so cruel? The only way to solve this… feed you to the Rancor. You had better hope that he’s not hungry – actually, the stomach flu has been going around, and the big guy hasn’t been finishing his meals. Perhaps we could consider… some alternate form of punishment… community service? Nah, we’ll just feed him to something else. GET JABBA.
4. R2-D2 Trash Can AFTER The Girl Scouts Got To Him
Read: this is the same can as shown in the last picture, but this was taken post-Girl Scout season. Those thin mints? THEIR NAMES LIE. They should call them obese mints – I mean, look at the guy! “You’re one to talk.” I’m just big boned. *Hides thin mints in belly flab*
5. Trash Can Compresses Garbage To Be Eco-Friendly
This trash can doesn’t look geeky at first, aside from the solar panels, but this can actually serves an important function! These are all over the streets of Philly, and they compress trash that people throw in so that it can hold 4 to 8 times as much as a normal trash can of the same size! Generally I care more about form than function, but this is an exception.
6. The Share Can: Probably Inspired By Timeline
When I say that it was probably inspired by Facebook’s timeline, I am relating the two by the fact that they are both terrible ideas. You could compete with your friends to see who could throw away the most garbage, but that would lead to wastefulness. Plus, I would always win, since I would just cheat and keep stepping on the share button. Or I could train my dog to do it, since he could do it four times as fast. “Why four times as fast?” Because he has four legs. “One, you have two legs, so that doesn’t even make sense. Two, it still doesn’t make sense, since there’s only one button.” Your face doesn’t make sense, and it doesn’t even have any legs.
