Similar ideas have been explored by multiple groups including MIT media lab and some CMU departments. However, we want to take a step further. There are dedicated tables for leftover foods on the CMU campus, but they have shortcomings in two ways: First, people don't know if there is food there, or if the food is still there. Second, they are isolated and not easily accessible. In this project, we want to build a system of connected leftover food tables to connect all of them together.
