Recompute Cardboard Computer Goes into Production


Recompute was presented to the world this time last year, but only as a revolutionary concept. Now the company behind it announced the first cardboard computers went into production.

There’s no news yet on when we can expect the first Recompute PCs to be delivered on the market, but the fact they’re mass-produced is good enough, for now. The concept behind Recompute is as simple as it is efficient and environment-friendly. Everything but the motherboard, RAM, processor and power-supply is made from recycling materials, thus keeping metal and electronic use minimal.

If your Recompute PC breaks down or becomes obsolete, you can simply send its components to be recycled while the cardboard case biodegrades over time. How cool is that!
