Eat 'em / unmanned submarine

Eat 'em

While a pilot observes nearby in a 'mom' submarine by the cameras attached to the 'baby' submarines, the unmanned 'baby' submarines(eight) go to collect garbage. By using a propeller the 'baby' submarine will suck in the garbage and release the water through the back so only the garbage will remain inside. While collecting, the 'baby' also crushes the garbage into a cube for efficient transportation and the convenience of storing. Brings it back to the 'mom' for temporary storage. It does not use common energy since they release greenhouse gases. Using solar panels, ‘Eat em’ will operate on solar power generation making a clean environment.
