An ATM of a different kind.

Recycling your old mobile phone, compact camera, MP3 player or even external storage device could soon become much easier – and more rewarding – following the installation of a gadget-recycling ATM in North America.

The first Eco ATM was installed in a furniture store in Nebraska late last month and, although it currently only accepts mobile phones, the firm behind the unit said the ATM can also support a wider variety of gadgets.

Users simply place their gadget into a slot on the ATM’s front, after which cameras are used to analyse the device’s condition, searching for body cracks, dings and the like, in order to determine its value.

Machine From Japan Turns Office Waste Into Toilet Paper



The Other Way Around Would be More Impressive…
We’re not too sure what to think about this 1,300 lbs piece of machinery by Tokyo-based Nakabayashi. It takes paper waste from an office and turns it into toilet paper: “The toilet paper machine is able to produce two rolls per hour from around 1,800 sheets (or 7.2kg) of used A4-sized paper”.
