If you've ever played basketball with a wadded-up piece of paper and a trash can, you'll appreciate what this man has brought into the world.

He created a robotic trashcan with a movement-tracking sensor. So when your shot is off, the trash can adjusts to pick it up. This could revolutionize waste disposal and (more importantly) future games of trash can basketball around the office.

Unfortunately for this guy, more and more people are not using garbage cans to dispose of paper. So the next step for this inventor? Create a robotic recycling bin.
