As part of the grant cycle, we held a mid-grant technical review to showcase our invention to stakeholders and the community to receive input and feedback.  At this event we had our first functioning prototype.  The details of the prototype are provided but there are several drawbacks, mainly that it was attached to the trash can by screwing through the front of the can.  This voids the warranty and we are trying to avoid that if possible!
