Kinect Powered Trash Can Moves to Catch Garbage

I need one of these. It’s a trash can on wheels connected (wirelessly, obviously) to a wall-mounted Microsoft Kinect. The Kinect uses it’s motion tracking capabilities to track garbage flying through the air and move the garbage can to the right spot to catch the flying debris. No matter what you toss or where in the room you toss it, the trash can catches it. You gotta watch the video:

Obviously there’s a lot of programming and engineering that goes into it to make the trash can actually move and talk to the Kinect. It’s all in Japanese, so if anyone has any more information on this, please leave a comment. Thank for the tip Arata.
