Grad student Ben Chase has come up with an eco friendly PC, that uses up only 27 watts of power. Wow! That is amazing.
The working model is just that, a prototype, but if given funding and with the right marketing arsenal, a model for the masses shoudn’t be too far off. The green computer is upgradeable through the use of easy pull out modules, and runs the Windows system.
This reminds me of the challenges some universities pose to their students. They give the students a budget, a deadline, and tell them to come up with an idea that solves an existing problem. And sure enough (with only limited resources) the students ”breakthough on the other side” and create awesome-ness.
