Get Green, with Brown!
The folks at Recompute have taken the notion of "Going Green" to a whole new level. They've made computer cases out of recyclable cardboard. We had the pleasure of speaking with Recompute's Brenden Macaluso and took one of their computers for a test drive. Here's what we found:
The computers living inside the cardboard boxes are actually quite functional. Although they're not super-fast gaming machines, the computer options aren't just a bunch of low-end Atom machines.
The cases feel sturdy. We were leery about using a computer case made of cardboard, but it didn't feel flimsy at all.
Although a cardboard case doesn't make the computer internals any more recyclable, it does actually make it easier to recycle those innards. They literally rip right out.
There are many skeptics when it comes to the Recompute idea. Some see the cardboard case as a gimmick, and some think a computer wrapped in brown craft paper is a fire hazard.
