In the press release, Vollebak co-founder Steve Tidball said “To avoid trashing our own planet, we need to start figuring out how to re-use the stuff we already have. So our Garbage Watch started with a very simple idea. What if electronic waste isn’t garbage? What if it’s simply pre-assembled raw materials that we can use to make new things. That’s why everything you can see on the Garbage Watch used to be something else – a motherboard from your computer, a microchip in your smartphone, or wiring from your TV.” More here.
If you come here for tech this watch is made from bits of computers. If you come here for watches it is still a watch. I kind of like it.
