The Swap-O-Matic

Swap-o-matic is "a new fun way to reduce consumption and waste in our community! The Swap-O-Matic is a vending machine that allows you to give away things you don't need, and get things you like, all for FREE!" It is also a very cool thesis project by Lina Fenequito combining her passions for art and social justice. It allow users to "rethink spending patterns, view consumption with a different perspective, and explore issues of material possessions and American consumption through a public installation" If you are in New York you can see the real thing; the rest of us can participate online, sort of an ebay for recycling.
