Today's Innovation Prize Goes To...

the City of Boston -- for its solar-powered trash compactors!


I must praise this compactor for its fault tolerant design: even if the power grid fails, it keeps compacting away. Very Erlangy :)

(Alas, if the sun fails, it is in trouble -- but then we'd have bigger problems to worry about :) )
