Yukka Collapsible Storage/Trash Bin

Yukka Collapsible Storage/Trash Bin

Does anyone remember the old-school collapsible cups that were popular among the under-10 set in the 80s? We can't help but compare this collapsible bin to those cups, and wonder now why no one thought of this before.

The Yukka bin won top prize on the BBC's Innovation Nation, a TV competition for inventors in the UK. In addition to locking at any desired height, the whole thing breaks down into pieces small enough to fit in a dishwasher.

So far we've only seen it for sale in Japan, but this online retailer ships overseas (provided you can make it through the form).
