Electronic appliances are not made to last or be repaired.

Despite this, often only a single or a few key components is needed to be replaced or repaired to restore the appliance to working order, often with just a few tools. This project aims to explore and show how this e-waste can be used in new ways, hopefully teaching people the potential of this resource.
