While intriguing, it may be a while before the logistics of this one are worked out: a laptop whose entire frame is made of recycled paper.
The idea is to make a laptop disposable, just as some phones and cameras are disposable. Between flexible OLED screens, foldable electronic paper, and printable circuit boards, the potential for creating a paper laptop is gradually increasing.
The pace of technological change sometimes seems to outstrip itself. Disposable electronics could provide a solution to making replacement technology cheaper and reducing environmentally unfriendly waste. It’s out for debate how well this kind of laptop could compete with increasingly low prices for netbooks and laptops unless the technology involved would allow for an absolute decrease in productive costs without loss of durability.
