Trash Track

Filed under: NYC, tech — mete23 @ 10:04 am

A team of MIT researchers have begun a project known as Trash Track and they want to attach electronic tags to a few volunteers’ trash (Starbucks coffee cup) in order to trace the path of the trash. The project has started in New York City and Seattle.

If you want to follow up on this project, they will be posting results online (not sure yet where it is online) and in exhibitions at the Architectural League in NYC and Seattle Public Library starting September.
