Circuit boards recycled as notebook covers


As splendid as these PCB-protected notebooks are, permit me a little disappointment that they are not laptops with chassis made of old circuit boards, copper traces and all.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. I bought a 3-ring binder made from defunct motherboards 7-10 years ago at a thrift store. Love that thing.

  4. 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.

  5. 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”?
