Xiaomi has released a new Smart garbage bin under the Youpin crowdfunding platform. The garbage bin ships with a price tag of 199 yuan ($28) but when the crowdfunding exercise, it will retail for 299 yuan ($42).
The smart trash can comes with the automatic lid opening function that we have seen in a couple of smart trash bins lately. Also, it automatically seals the bag when it is filled. The bin arrives in the traditional white body what Xiaomi products are famous. It has a dimension of 330mmx188mmx370mm and capacity is up to 12L. The thinner design ensures that it could fit into tight spaces as the gap between the toilet seat and the wall. The edge of the top cover of the smart net trash can is equipped with an infrared sensor. The effective sensing range is about 30 degrees upward from the motion detector. It also has a range of about 35cm. When the hand is stretched within the sensing area, the lid of the trash can will open automatically.
If the trash could needs to be kept open for a long time, there is a button to open it and after use, it can be closed with the click of the button again. There is also a button at the top edge of the barrel to automatically package the bag. Whenever the garbage bag is taken out, the smart bin stimulates an automatic negative suction pressure under the barrel what sucks a new back into the inner wall of the trash could.
Further, the smart garbage bin is equipped with a built-in 2000mAh lithium battery what could last for 150 days on standby. The lid could be opened up to 20,000 times after a full charge. It charges completely in just 3-4 hrs.
