Re-Using Your Geeky Trash

There is no longer any use for a 3.5 inch floppy disk let alone a 5.25'. many a coastered CD never finds another home. And keyboard keys, well, they may be beautiful, but there's nothing you can do with them after you (I) spilled that beer.

Acorn Studios is a business that is turning old computer materials (and other things) into repurposed products. The founder, Nicola Harper, is a waste management engineer turned eco-entrepreneur. Her studio has a number of different products made from recycled materials in their online store, but there are other experimental pieces that are being developed and generic levitra cheap items from their booth that are sold at local (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) craft shows.

There's wit behind the tramadol rx designs that geeks appreciate (keychains made with Enter or Home keys from old computer keyboards, paper notebooks made with old floppy disks as the covers, etc.)

It's not as extreme as turning cow poop into boards but it's another transformation of a waste stream into a resource stream. My inner EcoGeek wants a pair of circuit-board cufflinks, but then I'd have to start wearing French cuffs more than once a year.

Some novel and inventive ideas there, I like the floppy notepads idea and the CD clocks (might make one myself).
Not too sure about the circuit board keychains and necklaces though, I thought some electronic components are toxic, when in contact with the skin?

impressive, all I can do with an old floppy disk is making it into a starship enterprise.....
