Robotic solar powered trash bins

We're finally going to start feeling guilty when we litter (and sleep on park benches): a group of British artists were commissioned to create a line of interactive street furniture with unique personalities, including solar-powered robotic trash bins and benches that flock together. Oddly enough, the artistic and executive director of the arts group that sponsored the project thinks that all this "cutting edge technology" will keep the new trash bins and benches safe from theft. He might want to try spending some time in public.
