EnviroTech Embarrassments

“oh my god michael, all of your loves are combined into one amazing discovery” That’s how Emily first introduced this ridiculous piece of science to me. Straight from the hacks in Amsterdam (via Every Skyline)…

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (Reuters) — Scientists said on Monday they have come up with a cell phone cover that will grow into a sunflower when thrown away.

Of all things for scientists to be working on. Please tell me that this breakthrough has more applications than just cell phone COVERS and that this is an important first step in making the entire cell phone biodegradable. In the meantime, it looks like Motorola and other phone makers are cleverly helping us to forget about the tech trash that the company ought to be collecting from us when we upgrade cell phones every 5 minutes. Then we wouldn’t have to worry about what to do with the rest of the phone (and toxics therein) when we get the sunflower seed into the stupid biodegradable case.ANd unless they’re talking about the actual casing of your cell phone, who actually buys cell phone covers? (except for gangsta pinder with his silver plated phone) Are we talking about recycling the one cell phone accessory that is completely useless?
