Real Life Trash Eating Video Game Urban Rivers

This real life floating trash collector is also a video game. It all started with the Urban Rivers project in Chicago. The UR team created the largest floating garden in the Windy City and they created a robot trash collector to keep it clean.

The trash collector replaced workers who went out on kayaks. These human cleaners couldn't keep up with trash accumulation. A remote controlled robot was debuted to help and it could operate 24 hours per day, and did the job well.

The UR team decided to outsource the remote operation of the bot with the modest Kickstarter goal of $10,000. THe team will turn the robot into a video game that anyone in the world can use to drive the robot. The game could debut as soon as 2019.
