Sustainable cardboard PC

Recompute; sustainable desktop computer

Brenden Macaluso's entry in the Greener Gadgets Design Competition from earlier in the year; the cardboard-housed Recompute

Recompute case is made of corrugated cardboard which is recyclable and renewable. There are four low-impact manufacturing processes in it's assembly: Die cutting, gluing (with non-toxic white glue), printing and electronic assembly. Recompute uses only three major electronic components: A motherboard with processor & memory, power supply, and a hard drive - it's cardboard housing means it can be disassembled without tools, so the electronics and case can be easily recycled individually.
