Love this post, i remember i use to teach my grandma play wii fit, it was a sweet experience. I think it will work great as long as the activities doesn't fall too far from the perception of "cool" by young people.

Congrats!, I think this idea is very easy to implement, and would create less reluctance because who doesn't like a simple and clear message.


Ethan commented on My Talkin'Bin

Hi Mathieu, this is an interesting idea , probably more useful and appealing for kids in the household. But i would love to have a bin that can occasionally surprise me by telling me some interesting things.
I personally would add some new features to the functions for example, it would be nice if the bin can tell me that the trash inside it is getting sticky or becoming very messy, or if there is a leak.
It can also alert people who didn't put the correct garbage in "recycling" side or the normal trash side.
It would also be useful when it can alert people that they have put dangerous trash in the bin for example batteries or broken glasses.
