Trashcan Mock-up
This app is designed for “Meaningful Connectivity.” We are connected to the trashcan in plenty of places around the city. We have a close connection with garbage collection company. By user’s taking photos of each of recycled items, individual’s acitivity will be recorded through the app. History from the app will define individuals preferences, then match it to the trashcan by the user’s choice of location. Moreover, user’s will have a chance to form a community.

While the app provides the each of one’s space to form a community by step by step, it can be continued in many different ways by each of one’s choices. Such as, starting conversation


Trashcans 

We have located trashcan’s in countless places by having connection with the trash bin community. The users will be able to connected based on elements from individual interest. 



Problem

Gen Z tend to be feeling more “loneliness” than the elderly.
“Gen Z are becoming young adults who are constantly shaping their own identities and individual traits.
Receiving information from DNA test results allows people to learn and discover a better sense of themselves.”
