Currently recycling laptops and electronic equipment can be a difficult and costly process but graduate students at Stanford hope to lead the way in designing easily recyclable laptops.
…Beyond recyclability, Bloom delivers other benefits for consumers. The team used the easy-to-disassemble modularity of Bloom to develop a keyboard and track pad that detach and allow for improved ergonomics.
The ease of disassembly also makes it easier to repair and upgrade components over the lifetime of the product, so that buying a computer is no longer a singular investment, but a longer-term relationship between the consumer and the service provider.
