The above link talks about phones that, once discarded, could be planted into the soil and you could have some blooms right there. Too radical? IMHO, considering the millions of phones that get thrown away every year, why not? Considering who I work for, maybe I should send it to some internally maybe? :wink:
It could also encourage designers to use better bio-degradable raw materials in the manufacturing process. But then the links says this all; be sure to check out the videos on the website.
:Edit: Found other links where University of Warkwick researchers, Motorola and PVAXX devised just such a way.
