As technology changes at a rapid pace, the world’s supply of tech trash is ever-increasing. The Illinois group Electric Waste Orchestra has developed an innovative approach for how to re-purpose some of the electronic junk that is no longer useful for its original purpose.
In the video below, we get to see and hear a guitar made from an old keyboard and six hard drives. Not only are the shiny hard drives a visual delight, but the form and structure of the nouveau guitar give new possibilities on how to rock out. Using open-source hardware and software, this innovative upcycle is uniquely suited to electronic musicians, electrical engineers and technophiles.
See them jam in the video below at 3:18!
