Colin Furze’s Remote-Controlled Wheelie Bin: Haul Trash

We’ve seen a small remote-controlled trash can, now let’s check out how you can make a large one. YouTube’s star inventor Colin Furze used an electric wheelchair’s components to motorize and remotely control a wheeled trash can, or as the Brits call it, a wheelie bin.

Instead of controlling the wheelchair directly, the controller manipulates a servo, which is connected to an arm that in turn manipulates the wheelchair’s joystick. This is by far one of Colin’s most practical inventions, but it’s still not good enough for regular use. True to its name, it’s prone to popping a wheelie and then promptly falling over.

I suppose his next move will be to put a jet engine on it.
