Smartwatch Bin Tracker
Because copying your neighbour is so old fashioned


After I created whichb.in, a public bin collection API originally for my home automation system, I decided to whip up a pebble smartwatch app that uses it to also display the information. No longer would I be more than 5 seconds away from knowing which rubbish bin would be collected next.

The app is written in Javascript, using Pebble.js. The menu highlight background changes to match the colour of the next bin due to be put out too, so that’s fun.
