Title:loopbook—the future of computing
Author(s):Coughlan, Damian
Subject(s):Sustainable design
Consumer electronics -- Source reduction (Waste management)
Abstract:Made entirely from recycled materials, this combination notebook/tablet computer would be upgradable and easy to repair, its designer says. The core computing module, containing the processor, memory and storage, is upgradable and removable, so it could be used in a new computer body. It also features a telescopic stem that allows the screen to slide out, revealing a keyboard underneath, and be raised up and used as a laptop or notebook computer. The project was submitted by a recent industrial design graduate from the University of Limerick, Ireland. It won the Silver award in the Prevention category.
