Greener Gadgets Preview: Recompute

Another vote-getter in the Greener Gadgets Design Competition is Recompute, a sustainably-designed computer. The case is cialisbest cialis made of corrugated cardboard instead of multiple materials. The manufacturing process is non-toxic and http://www.absmag.fr/viagra-usa only three major electronic components are included: a motherboard with processor and memory, a power supply and a hard drive.

To keep with the low-environmental impact of the Recompute, users can utilize keyboards, mice and other hardware from old computers by connecting them to the cialis where to buy eight available USB ports.

Finally, the Recompute is made to be disassembled without tools so that the parts can be recycled appropriately and easily. The Recompute aims to canadian viagra be a fully sustainable computer from manufacturing to recycling at the end of its life. Best of all, it's a working computer. Tomorrow we'll find out if the audience thinks it's worthy of the grand prize.

Talk about style over substance.

The toxic parts of i use it levitra online no prescription computers (mercury, lead, etc) are not the plastic cases. The toxins are in the circuit boards, hard drives, etc, as well as the byproducts of manufacturing.

Amazing that people unquestioningly fall for greenwashing in this way.

Computer in a box
written by John Rowell, February 27, 2009
I could toss my computer's components into a cardboard box too ... but that wouldn't make it green.

As noted by all above, total fire hazard. This is ridiculous.

I'm glad to see the cialis soft gel comments. The fact that this idea is getting votes frankly cannot speak well of the competition.

But please tell us... how exactly is the manufacturing process "non-toxic"?

Cases made from old ammunition cans and Lego blocks are way cooler...!

How much electricity does it use?
written by Carl, February 27, 2009
So far, every "green" general purpose computer fails to disclose the amount of power used, and ability to use sleep/standby. Making the computer case from bamboo or cardboard makes little difference, but $500 in electricity
does (based on real measurements of a laptop vs desktop).

My cats already have cardboard scratching posts. Wonder how long this would last in my home?

Aluminium cases are also recyclable.

Why?
written by Andy, March 03, 2009
Quite simply the stupidest thing I have ever seen in my life. It is unfathomable how someone could actually try to push this as a practical and "green" product.

Non-toxic? Really? And since when is an aluminum case not recyclable?

A computer case isn't just for encasing the viagra order components inside. They should be made of metal so that RF signals (radio frequencies) don't get inside the computer and enter site take cialis cause interference. RF isn't going to http://www.asian-americans.com/how-much-does-cialis-cost completely destroy your computer, but would cause data sent inside your computer to lose packets of information. Which in turn slows down your computer.

As a nerd, I love the easy access to the inside of only today levitra costs the computer part of it though!

The combustibility point of cardboard from heat is enter site levitra online india 800 degrees F. That is why you can cook a frozen pizza in your oven on the disc of cardboard that it comes on and it doesn't catch on fire. If the case was to catch on fire it would be because an internal component caught fire first. The case would not catch fire from ambient heat of the electronic parts...and there is an abundance of ventilation for the parts that they never get hot. The green aspect of the design has to do with the amount of effort used to make a computer, less effort (energy, labor, resources, etc) the more sustainable. Yes the electronic components have toxic heavy metals in them, and must be recycled properly, however because current case design makes component removal difficult it is NOT done. The end result is that most of it ends up in the land fill causing other problems. Sustainably reaches further than power consumption and the ability to be recycled, it is a holistic approach in the manufacturing, use and disposal of overnight cod tramadol an object.

ZK,

Yah, understand that cardboard doesn't just spontaneously combust, but computers made with metal casings catch fire currently (not the metal part, obviously), which is why there are flammability standards, including direct flame exposure tests, REQUIRED for electronic devices and their housings. The proposed solution demonstrates a complete and profound lack of understanding of product development, requirements, consumer products testing procedures, and basic product liability.

Neat! At least you could feel 'green' while your house goes up in smoke.

This is in the silly green zone.

Rather than making a large tower constructed from numerous materials (ABS plastic, aluminum, steel, etc.), hundreds of manufacturing processes, and dozens of individual components, the Recompute case is made of corrugated cardboard (recyclable and renewable). There are four low-impact manufacturing processes to assemble Recompute: Die cutting, gluing (with non-toxic white glue), printing and scam viagra from candad electronic assembly. www.ordercomputer.com
