This garbage can makes me smile. Literally. It listens to the tv and opens when the news comes on. Not only that, it loves to play with Jacob by opening when he walks by. Now they play together, Jacob walks by, the garbage can opens, he drops his ball in, it closes, and... he waits.. and continues to wait until he moves again, and the lid pops open.
The sensor is on the front of the can at the lid level, so just wheeling in front of it will activate it, as will saying open can, or just open, so it's very accommodating.
It's also really pretty. Semi matte silver with a low gloss shine, it's elegant and clean looking, fitting right in anywhere at all.
