Another vote-getter in the Greener Gadgets Design Competition is Recompute, a sustainably-designed computer. The case is made of corrugated cardboard instead of multiple materials. The manufacturing process is non-toxic and 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 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 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.
