Greener Gadgets Design Competition 2009

I like gadgets because they usually cute and bringing me value (saving, time, great experience, fun). Some gadgets are very cool, but also very bad for the environment (due to usage of toxic chemicals). Once in a while I get my hand/eye on a gadget which I like, but also green.

I would recommend you visiting the Greener Gadgets Design Competition Website, to learn about last year ideas, but also to have the opportunity to contribute.

Here is some information from the Website

Design Brief

We invite designers to explore the concept of "Greener Gadgets." Designs should seek to minimize the environmental impact of consumer electronic devices at any stage in the product lifecycle. Areas of sustainability to consider include energy, materials/lifecycle/recycling, social impact, and educational development. Designers can focus on a particular area of human enterprise (learning, playing, communicating, etc.), or a particular context (work, home, school, etc.), a particular material, or a specific device. Entries may also seek to create new paradigms for products and services.
