Issue: Roughly 600,000 consumer basketball hoops are sold each year. When you have small pieces of garbage at your desk and want to throw them out, but the garbage can is too far away. Sometimes at the office you can get bored and want to have a little fun and this will contribute to that.
Concept: I constructed a small basketball hoop attached to a garbage can. You can leave it at your desk and leave garbage in it as well.
Impact: This is a fun way to throw trash out and will help clean up the office.
On my first attempt the hoop was too small. It was very hard to make a shot so I decided to make it bigger.
After I made the hoop bigger, the one pole couldn’t support the backboard and the hoop, and it would fall over. I decided to add more supports.
This was my final product, and it works well. I am sure that it would sell.
