Trash floating down the Chicago River is a terrible sight! Luckily, there's a new robot that is helping to clean things up!
"Trashbot" is currently in its prototype phase but will eventually begin to collect trash on the river via remote control.
It's creators are allowing volunteers to help out! You'll be able to log on to trashbot.org, access the camera and control the robot remotely. Each person will have 2 minutes to control the bot from their computer!
