Can we game our way to a cleaner world?
Take control of our garbage-eating robot either in person or online! Created by Chicago-based collective Urban Rivers, Trash Robot will be trawling Melbourne’s Yarra River collecting rubbish outside of the City’s existing litter traps. And Melbourne’s waterways really need the help – in 2017, they were filled with enough rubbish to fill almost 30,000 wheelie bins. This sort of rubbish causes heaps of issues and costs the city around $3 million per year. Boo!
Could this floating gamified robot save the world? Why not? Nothing’s ever gone wrong with robots, right?
Yarra River, Southbank
