The Smart Trashbox is a trashcan on wheels that can catch what you throw away, ensuring your screwed up paper and empty beer cans don’t miss and end up on the floor. Created by Japanese modder FRP, it uses Kinect sensors to monitor and track the trash as it is thrown, calculates its trajectory, and moves underneath using its motorized wheel base to catch it.
