Too Smart City is an interactive installation of street furniture by JooYoun Paek and David Jimison. I consulted on all three pieces of furniture during the mechanical design phase. I designed and built the internal mechanisms of the Smart Trash Can that allows it to analyze trash and accept or reject it.
