TempSen / wastebasket

TempSen

TempSen is a thermosensitive wastebasket which is make of bimetallic material. Two strips of different metals which expand at different rates as they are heated are welded and worked up into coil. During the day, the temperature is high and TempSen is flabby enough to store more trash; At night, the temperature is low and Tempsen becomes tight enough to squash the trash. Then, there will be more space to store rubbish when temperature rises again. With TempSen , one rubbish bag can hold more. This is in favor of resource conservation. Meanwhile, it will remove the impulse of putting foot in wastebasket.
