Computers are normally seen encased in some aluminum cases which as everyone knows gives off harmful CO2. But with this wooden framed PC, all that is about to change.
Called iameco (i-am-eco), this new PC reportedly produces about 70% less CO2 and is made mostly of recyclable materials. The iameco PC was made possible through the collaboration of MicroPro and German designers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration IZM.
The new touchscreen PC is 98% made of recyclable materials, with 20% which can be reused to repair other devices. Heatsinks were used to replace fans for processor cooling, saving energy and impressively keeps the computer run quietly. LED lights are used for the display, further pulling down the power consumption of the PC while the modular construction of the frame allows easy access and maintenance of the components, allowing it to be repaired easier and encouraging retrofitting instead of new purchases.
