GeniCan is an attachment that scans bar codes of the things you throw away into garbage can. And it figures out what you need to add to your shopping list. It is actually a WiFi enabled attachment. And it’ll respond to voice commands of you.

And it connects to your home wi-fi network to add items to the shopping list located in the GeniCan app on your smart phone.


Intentionally thrown items into garbage cans will not be added to the grocery list. You need to scan the item before the scanner for 2 seconds, then it’ll add that product to the list. If it cannot recognize the bar code on any product, it’ll work on your voice commands and add that item to your grocery list.

Cost and Shipping:

It is available from a starting price of 149 USD. If you go for the special Pre-Order, you will be able to save 25 USD.

And the delivery of the desired product is expected in early 2017.

The Moment that led to the invention of GeniCan:

GeniCan Co-Founder and Inventor Rob Griffin watched his son throw away a ketchup bottle.  So, the best time to capture required items for the shopping list is the second you throw them away, according to Rob. And that’s the beginning of this invention. It was mentioned by Rob in one of his blog posts. Now it is led by Rob Griffin and David Pestka.
