Here is the world’s first robotic computer and there is a possibility that it could be yours, only if you join the Reuse the Can Competition. Reuse the Can Competition was launched by Eco-redesign because of the fact that many metal cans are being wasted everyday. Three winners will get a Netbook PC, Top 60 Ideas will get a Magnesium Flashlight and one winner will get the Robotic Computer.
The Robotic Computer, which is going to be launched around third quarter this year, is an organic design computer that adapts itself to anyone posture and give a new degree of freedom of work, no matter standing, sitting and whatever you want to.
For more information on the Reuse the Can Competition, please read the press release after the break.
Hong Kong – Eco-redesign launched Reuse the Can Competition and offered the world first Robotic Computer for the winner of Innovation and Business Fit in Reuse the Can competition. The Robotic Computer, which is going to be launched around third quarter this year, is an organic design computer that adapts itself to anyone posture and give a new degree of freedom of work, no matter standing, sitting and whatever you want to.
The competition is being inspired by the fact that many metal cans are being wasted everyday. In US 16.8 mil college students between the ages of 18 and 24 year chewed at least a piece of gum once every four weeks. In UK, gum is regularly chewed by over 12.2 million people. If only 50% of them consume six cans every year then each year we have to take care of 87 mil cans. To align the cans end by end, the total length is over 8000Km and it is the distance to link United States and United Kingdom together. If we can think a way to reuse the can that store the gum then we can reuse 1305 tons of metal and avoid approximately 2377 tons of CO2 emissions.
The competition is about the creation of new and innovative ideas and creativity, originality or business fit designs for reusing the metal cans from our daily life. The ideas may be described with simple application scenarios and extended idea with designs or technical solutions. The goal of the contest is to let public to think about our daily life carbon feet print and take every step to reduce it.
Competition will be carried in three groups: Public, College or Above, Below College. 60 best ideas from the first contest phase which will be ended by 16 September 2009 will win a sustainable design Magnesium Flashlight, three designs from the second contest phase which will be ended by 21 October 2009 will be awarded a Netbook computer and one winner of Innovation and Business Fit will get a Robotic Computer.
