A small hub like device affixed to your trashcan/recycle bin via a simple magnet system, GeniCan acts as a sort of barcode scanner for the trash you throw away. You simply hold the item near the scanner before disposing of it, or give GeniCan a voice command using the on-board mic. It can then track those products to create reminders and aisle-by-aisle shopping lists directly on your smartphone.
The companion app also provides automatic delivery for the items you buy most frequently, similar to what we have seen with Droplet and Amazon Dash, along with reminders to take the trash out and more. You can see more details in the video below.
After that, it will shoot up to $149, and then to $179 once the campaign has ended. The small trashcan add-on will come in 5 colors: light grey, black, dark grey, blue and green.
