Apple Mac Pro Trashcan

By Ideaco 

Sleek, black, minimal, with 0GB of RAM, and no processing power, the Tubelor trashcan (¥3,465Prices are approximate only and subject to change.

) by Ideaco is a beautifully designed, award winning trashcan. It is not a computer. Again, for those having trouble understanding: this is a trashcan and not a computer. But you’d be forgiven for thinking otherwise. The Tubelor and the new Apple Mac Pro look so similar that Amazon Japan — in a disastrous move for Apple’s Public Relations — warned buyers on twitter that the trashcan “was not the new Mac Pro.”

The same million-dollar-brains that designed the new Mac Pro, have unwittingly duplicated the work of a innovative design company in Osaka called Ideaco. Founded by Ichiro Haba, the company reinvents everyday life items and in 2006, they produced the Tubelor featuring an innovative two tube design which cleverly conceals the trash bag inside. The design won a prestigious German iF Product Design Award in 2008 and is also currently being used in luxury restaurants and hotels, such as The Standard Hotel in New York City.

It’s brilliantly designed and ahead of its time, but it’s now also an ingenious device for thwarting criminals. Because in a room full of Tubelor trashcans, no one can steal your expensive Apple computer without accidentally taking home a lot of beautifully concealed trash in the process.
