Do you have countless CDs lying around your house? What happens to discarded computer parts?
Inspired by our Pinterest board, Reimagined Tech, we’re highlighting a couple of our favorite examples of aging technology given a second life. From futuristic sneakers to a shining CD falcon, there’s no end to the creative ways you can repurpose (nearly) obsolete materials.
Peregrine Falcon: Instead of CDs collecting dust, Australian sculptor Sean E Avery transformed these fragments into a stunning bird of prey’s feathers.
Nike Junk Dunk: Artist Gabriel Dishaw’s Shoe Sculpture Series used computer parts and typewriters to recreate some of his favorite sneakers.
Remote Control Bracelets: After you upgrade to the Logitech Harmony Smart Control, what do you do with all your old remotes? Brit + Co. has you covered with a DIY project that combines fashion and technology. Check out how to make your own wearable tech here.
Trojan Horse: “hedonism(y) trojaner”, a full size horse made of discarded computer keys by German artist Babis Cloud, cleverly references both the Greek tale of the Trojan Horse and the modern Trojan computer virus.
