So this happened. A Japanese modder created a trashcan that will move to catch objects you toss in the air. An XBox Kinect is mounted to the wall to scan for moving objects, and when something flies, the can moves to catch it.
I still hope to get John Sim (@jrsim_uix) and Noel (@noelportugal) in a room to put their Kinect and maker chops together. Oh, the mad science that would come of that collaboration.
Love this stuff, h/t Ultan (@ultan) for sending this along.
