“Hermit Crab”Trash Can

Because of the tide, the coastline changes constantly every day. The traditional garbage can is usually fixed on the shore far away from the beach. People on the beach often cannot find the garbage can, which causes environmental pollution.
This trashcan is equipped with crawlers that can move freely along the beach, and can also move intelligently in response to changes in tide and crowd density. The inverted triangle structure and heavy bottom structure can withstand the sea wind, and the top is equipped with solar lamp which can become the coastal street lamp at night.
