Don't you just hate flies? And why are they always attracted to your trash can? To put all of that to rest, this ingenious trash can was designed to trap flies only to have them starve.

Envisioned by designers Chang Shih-hsun and Hung Jui-yuan, the lid on the trash can slits on the bottom of the lid to allow an imperceptible small amount of trash odor to rise up. This attracts flies, and as soon as they enter through the outer slits, they'll be trapped in an inner container which they'll be sentenced to death by way of starvation.

For now, the lid is just in concept mode. The designers won a Red Dot award for their clever design, and hopefully, someone actually picks this design up and make it real. [Discovery News via Yanko Design]
