High-Tech trash disposals get digital in time for the 2012 Olympics displaying weather and tube information.

In preparation for the 2012 Olympics, London will introduce 25 high-tech ‘smart bins’ placed around the city. These recycling bins will be embedded with an LCD display on each side and come integrated with Wi-Fi connectivity. The screens will constantly change to display different information, ranging from weather forecasts to stock prices.

In addition, these high-tech bins are also bomb-proof. At $1,880 each, they aren’t cheap compared to traditional outdoor recycling bins that are usually between $200-500. The smart bins won’t only be seen in London, but are also expected to be implemented in other metropolitan cities including New York, Singapore and Tokyo.
