Not that I should be complaining, because I like that they are recycling… but I have had one of these notebooks for at least 15 years. This isn’t a new product.
Still cool though.
They use the blanks that failed testing / etc. Usually have never had components on them.
There used to be a guy in Spitalfields market in London who sold lampshades out of PCBs. I have one in one of my bedrooms.
Perhaps after steampunk, atompunk and dieselpunk, we need a new movement for modding laptops by covering them with circuit boards, ICs and other electronic-looking bits. How about “tronpunk”?
I bought a 3-ring binder made from defunct motherboards 7-10 years ago at a thrift store. Love that thing.
must make a jerkin of scale mail one day.
Even better? Circuit boards disguised as Netbook covers.
how is this not a pincushion?
Responsible PCB-recycling artists grind and polish!
I think I bought my first circuit board notebook in the 80’s, this is neither new nor exciting…though it is nice to know that people are still doing it.
