Every year, millions of people around the world choose not to recycle because they don't know how! We wanted to simplify recycling for the public.
What it does
Robot Recycler uses a Kinect to search for recyclables, then either puts things in the trash, or the recycling! It's that easy!
How I built it
We used the Kinect, Robot Operating System, and Arduino to build Robot Recycler.
What's next for Robot Recycler
In the future, we'd like to add more models to our Kinect's library so that no recycling ever gets put in the trash!
