Or even reuse it. But alot of people apparently just throw whole computers away. I bet there are plenty of P4~ish level of computers just sitting places that would still run perfectly fine. Which brings me to: You still have the problem of motherboards and whatnot just sitting in landfills.

Special recycling centers, sure. It's called China, where the metals get stripped out of the PCB by kids. Fun cancer factory, yay!

The computer case accounts for 10% of the embodied energy of a computer, at the absolute most. It's also the most reusable part.

I've seen the "cardboard PC case" a dozen times in the last 5 years. The problem is nobody wants a freaking cardboard case.

How could this be a thesis? Seriously, this project deserve a D at best...

My final project for my bachelor degree was way more impressive and it was far from a thesis.

I was using a DSP for Analog/Digital/Analog conversion for my guitar signal. In the digital area, I was applying echoes, equalizing filters and distortion...
