The Garbage Reader 1.0 (aka G.R 1.0 or Grone), is the first of a series of robots by Ireland-based, French artist Ben Gaulon that analyzes the contents of garbage bins. The bot senses its immediate environment for toxicity, temperature, and humidity levels and remotely reports the data over a network while it’s head-mounted camera streams back live images. I guess its true what they say about making sure you have a paper shredder for those important documents you don’t want others reading after you trash them.
