As you approach this stainless beauty, garbage in hand, it senses your presence and opens automatically. This is due to its SilenX Eagle Eye infrared beam with Point ’n’ Lock Artificial Intelligence technology.

The can has appeared on QVC and HSN shopping TV and has crossed over to stores. Its makers say if you use it 20 times a day (that’s a lot of trash), it should last 10 years. The guarantee, however, is one year.

It is getting good reviews on Amazon.com, but if you spend 60 bucks on a trash can, you’re probably going to defend it.
