OctoClean / Garbage collector


OctoClean is a unique system that collects the floating garbages using the buoyancy of water. It manipulates the gargabes that are in the radius, to the center of the unit, leading it to float into the bin basket. We do this manipulation using the green wings that are constantly spinning. With this new method, people can see how much garbage gets thrown into the ocean and how much OctoClean has gathered. Because unlike other products the garbage pile is above the water level therefore visible. This can inspire people to be more aware approaching this issue.
PS: OctoClean is more likely to work more properly in calm waters. For exm:Marines.
