We enable everyone to make the BeachBot smarter. By playing our game you connect with the BeachBot to detect more litter. Moreover you connect with your environment and with nature. Together we can make a difference to keep the beach clean and to change a mindset around littering.
Please subscribe to our newsletter and stay posted around the development of the BeachBot and the supporting game.

On Saturday September 19 it was World Cleanup Day. With Project.BB we were present on the beach of Scheveningen that day for a successful demo with our BeachBot. Many thanks for everyone who supported us to make this happen.

BB's first performance on the beach (Beachclub Down Under Beach, Zwarte Pad Scheveningen). It was great to take the robot for a spin and get feedback from beachgoers. We will be out there for another test in August and a demo in September.

From 7 -10th of January BB had a booth at Eureka park, next to Holland Tech Square. Amazing experience to be part of CES.tech and to receive so many positive feedback.
Small litter that roams around on the beach effects the health of sea water, species and eventually our food chain.
Did you know that one cigarette filter can poison hundreds liters of water? Filters won't tear down and breakdown into microplastics.
Along with Delft University of Technology we built a demo of a litter picking robot using Artificial Intelligence (AI). Our BeachBot (.BB) stops once it recognizes litter and automatically collects it.
Supported by a mobile app and mixed reality game .BB interacts with people and asks for their help to clean the beach. In a playful way we want to contribute to more awareness about littering.
