Garbage Bin + Vacuum Cleaner = Dust-Sucking Trash Can

The worst part of sweeping something up is not the sweeping but the up. Getting the last little bits off the floor often requires a few passes with the broom, a round with the vacuum cleaner or at least some bending over with the dust pan.

Thus, this waste-sucking receptacle by Jun-se Kim, Yonggu Do & Eunha Seo that does the dirty work for you, pulling dust in from all sides via an internal electric motor (powered by a plug-in, wall-socket-friendly cord).

Like a normal full-or-floor-sized hand vac, a built-in filter catches larger particulates at the bottom while smaller dust particles pass up through into a waiting bag to be changed periodically when taking out the trash. It would be great if there were a way to drive this dirt directly into the main compartment – perhaps in the next iteration.
