Profile Info

Thomas has created a device that takes your wheelie bin to the curb for you! The robot does all the dirty work... The device connects to the wheelie bin, mimicking a human, and pulls the bin out and takes it to the curb using a pre-programmed route.

 

What inspired you to create your project?

The feedback I got from the first version was really overwhelming and that motivated me and helped me see that this was a real problem. I received a lot of feedback on things that I could improve on and I wanted to see how much further I could push the project.

Who or what influences your tech/innovation?

I love problem-solving and actually doing something about the problems we face, so when I come across a new problem it inspires me to figure out how I can solve it.

What is your dream job?

Entrepreneurship.
