"Move to Trash" Turns Office Wastebin Into an Action Game

By: Alexandra Choli - Published: Mar 5, 2009 • References: petitinvention.wordpress
Waste bins are necessary office accessories but rather boring ones. The basketball-like activity that most of us may engage in from time to time, tossing trash in with a fadeaway touch, livens up the tedious lives of our dustbins and offers us some swift amusement. With a minor modification, though, you can kick it up a notch and create a viral game out of a wasteful activity.

This is the ambitious vision of designer Mac Funamizu and his 'Move to Trash' concept. By attaching a slick transparent backboard on your regular wastepaper basket you can easily create a mini NBA setting right in your workplace. And if you want to put some eco-conscience in your wrist action, add a reward system: say 1 point for a successful throw in regular trash and 3 points in recycled.
