Let’s face it our inner cities aren’t the cleanest places, out there. From downtown to uptown and back again, a stroll down your nearest urban area will probably reveal heaps of garbage of all sorts. It’s become such a problem, in fact, that one enterprising young team has decided to get people to dispose their trash properly by turning into a game.

Meet the TetraBin, a next-gen trashcan which features a series of sensors inside the bin which then measure the size and shape of your litter before triggering the release of a block inside the Tetris-like game shown on the outside of the can via a LED screen. Each time you dispose of your garbage, the you gain control of a new block and, as a result, people are incentivized to throw more trash away in order to keep playing.
