About the IRIS touchless trash can:
This 100% touch-free trash can creates a germ free, odor free, and automated environment.
As your hand or debris approaches within a few inches from the infrared sensor beam on top of the trash can, the iris diaphragm will automatically open, then close as you walk away. It keeps your hands clean while you are cooking or playing with your children, and helps to prevent germ contamination, which reduces the threat of illness and infections.
Your friends and family will also be impressed with the touchless capability combined with the futuristic look of the iris diagram.
Because the trash can turns an ordinary chore into something fun, anyone will enjoy throwing the trash away.
Infrared sensor function allows for touch-free operation.
The iris diaphragm retracts horizontally as opposed to a lid that open upwards, which means this trash can will fit in lower clearance areas such as under the sink.
The circular shape and retractable iris looks sleek when placed anywhere in your home or office.
Allows for multi-tasking while dumping debris.
Eliminates cross-contamination of germs.
The IRIS is powered by batteries or the optional power adapter.
Risks and challenges
We've spent quite a bit of time engineering the IRIS to meet a high standard of design, performance, and durability. We’re confident in our product, but will always be transparent and inform our backers of potential hurdles that may arise.
Tooling and molding can be challenging. Creating complex molds is expensive.
We have assembled a team experienced in manufacturing abroad and working within the supply chain process. We have selected the best manufacturers to ensure that the IRIS is on schedule to be delivered according to our forecast. Unexpected shortages and delays can occur, however, when dealing with numerous components from different suppliers.
Design adjustments for production of the case and mold are required to optimize manufacturing costs and assembly time.
Adjustments in the electronics have to be made to optimize the performance of the product, as well as general quality, resistance and reliability.
Nevertheless, you can be sure we will do our best to deliver on time and we are pretty confident we will get the product to you as expected.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
