It is not today that Xiaomi usually launches unusual products. Recent examples include the reinforced umbrella and Mi LED intelligent lamp. Now the Chinese manufacturer has announced a smart bin in partnership with the outsourced company Ninestars.
The garbage can was named after the partner company and has the ability to open automatically and rely on resources aimed at the hygiene of its users.
The Xiaomi Ninestars is made of ABS plastic and has a capacity of up to 10 liters. Its body is similar to a drum in order to improve the fit of the walls, and has an integrated silent motor and a smart chip – to control the rise and fall of the lid.
It has opening and closing by induction, at a distance between 6 and 30 cm, which reduces the risk of any bacterial cross infection, since the hand contact with the cap is not necessary. In addition, it contains an antiodor structure.
If the owner wants to keep it open, there is also a silent button to manage the feature. To complete, the bin uses carbon batteries – autonomy of 6 months – or alkaline – that can last up to 17 months.
Detail: The object does not support automatic exchange of packaging and garbage bags.
Still without an exact date, Xiaomi Ninestars is expected to hit stores in the international market over the coming weeks. It will be available for the price of 129 Yuan (~ $ 75).
