ReFILL transforms a recycling bin into a engaging and rewarding interactive experience. Created for the Vivid Sydney 2014 lights festival, it encourages festival goers to dispose their recyclables into the ReFILL interactive recycling bin.
The process is simple, place a recyclable object on top of the trapdoor inside the ReFILL cabinet and press the green button. A split second before the trap door opens, ReFILL takes a photo of the object and using computer vision it creates a digital snapshot of it to be added to an interactive animation projected from the ReFILL cabinet onto a nearby building. The digital objects fall down the building facade, bouncing off windows and doors using real-time physics and form a growing mound of recyclables that collect throughout the festival.
