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 items from their booth that are sold at local (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) craft shows.
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.
