The Grumpy Bin (published work) is a novel system for student housing that benefits from the power of the jokes and anecdotes between friends in order reduce food waste. It contributes to the state of the art of social change by challenging the traditional approach on pervasive technology, which is commonly based on system-driven ethical judgments. Instead, our design empowers users and their social acquaintances to collectively judge their actions, therefore adding a layer of social pressure that is likely to increase the chance for behavioral change.
