The Gomi-Betsu bot--or affectionately, “Betsie”--is the new assistive robot to enhance life at home! The word 'Gomi' (ゴミ) and 'Betsu" (べつ) is Japanese for 'trash' and 'separate' which is exactly what our robot does. As we all know, recycling is better for the earth, but sometimes that can be a hassle. With this robot, the separating is done for you, which leaves you just to drop the recyclable into the chute. This eliminates the inconvenience that comes with recycling, and creates an eco-friendly environment at home.
