Hard on the but and easy on the eyes

All around the world there are old electronic devices like computers, printers, and other gear that will never be used again that simply sit until it's recycled into something else. Typically, when stuff is recycled it's chopped up melted down to make new components for other devices. A guy named Rodrigo Alonso has taken a different path for recycle electronic waste.

Alonso takes a bunch of old computer hardware and chops the computer hardware up and places it into a mold. The chopped up components are then mixed with a material made from resin and melted recycled aluminum. After a while, that resin mixture hardens and you end up with a see-through cube made to be used as a stool to sit on with a bunch of old computer parts and CDs you can see inside the seat.

He calls the geeky line of stools N+ew and when they pop out of the mold they already have feet and handles. He's using a reddish tinted resin or a clear resin to make the seats and they both look cool. I prefer the reddish color as it looks like an ancient bug made of old computer parts landed in amber and is stuck there for eternity. I would like to have one of these in my office.
