If I told you that a garbage bin won a design award in Sydney and the coveted IxDA interaction design award, you’d wonder what I was talking about. Well, TetraBIN is literally (litter-aly!) an award winning trash can. Why is that? Because it makes trash disposal so unique and fun, it became an instant iconic art-installation in itself!

The bin is separated into three compartments, and has a massive 8-bit style screen on the outside, running all around the periphery of the bin. When switched on, the bin runs its own version of the block-dropping game Tetris, allowing you to somewhat maneuver the blocks by throwing garbage into the bin. Turn debris to tetris I say!

Designers: Steven Bai, Sam Johnson & Martin Tomitsch of TertraBIN
