Green gadgets come to the rescue

What is a green gadget actually? The one made of re-cycling materials or the one with less energy consuming and less pollution parameters? Well, you name it. It's true for both scenarios. However this piece of cardboard computer case is lot more greener than its competitors. Owner of this cardboard computer has submitted this work for a design contest based on “Go greener” theme in a contest held by Greener Gadgets. It is called Recompute Sustainable Desktop Computer. It's ment to be sustainable during manufacturing, use and disposal as stated by Brenden Macaluso.

You can see lots of contestants with creative ideas. Unfortunately the winner of this contest was not Brenden. Instead Limor Fried, Adafruit Industries and Phillip Torrone from Make Magazine has taken their invention to the top. It's called Tweet-a-Watt. This funny device converts your power usage to your Tweeter followers wirelessly. It has a modified power meter such as Kill-a-Watt and sends the power usage at the end of the day to your tweeter account as a post. Ops. It sends the total power consumption result of whatever is connected to it. If you want to have a look at it, just follow tweetawatt in twitter.

 Just having a fresh source of brand new design concepts would put a little smile on your face I bet.
