For London 2012, new bombproof trash cans that have dual giant LCD screens and Wi-Fi hotspots will brighten up the dreary London fog.
I'm not in love with the idea of LCD screens on trashcans—one more thing that will stop tourists dead in their tracks on busy city sidewalks—but I totally adore the idea of wi-fi hotspot trashcans. It's a smart way to double up on two important urban necessities. One of these necessities has always existed, and one of them developed over the last decade. This is something I'd love to see in Seattle.
