The Trashcan that Never Misses

Testing your basketball shot with that crumpled up piece of paper is one way to entertain yourself with failures and false starts on projects.  What isn’t so much fun is picking up all the garbage that didn’t quite make it to the garbage bin – a problem the Smart Trashbox eliminates entirely.

Using the Kinect-controlled trashcan, you’ll never know how good your aim is, but discarded papers won’t stand a chance of hitting the floor.  And it’s probably more entertaining to watch a wheeled wastebasket move to catch your paper balls than to throw them into a stationary bin.

The system uses Kinect sensor and some original codework to measure the flight of your garbage then get into position to catch it.  You can watch the Smart Trashbox’s amazing saves in this video.
