Wednesday Wonder: Somabar

There’s no denying, with the holidays right around the corner, that you’re bound to have a few very long days!

It’s Time To Brew A Fresh Pot Through Your Phone

A waterproof, bomb-proof trash can has been confirmed, and we’re intrigued 

We thought we had “seen it all” when we heard about the interactive Wi-Fi “Fun-Vii” concept car designed by Toyota—but these trashcans created by Renew make any “smart car” seem like old news.

Did we mention they have Wi-Fi with LCD screens, too? For the London Olympics this year, Kaveh Mamri’s company Renew created bins that aren’t your average cigarette butt trash can combo; these multiplex garbage cans are an entire city network, a “beacon in the City.” They are also incredibly strong and bomb proof, having gone under extreme strength tests in a desert in New Mexico.
