Autodesk has been giving away Inventor of the Month awards. The October award was given to a group of Stanford grad students. They designed the “Bloom laptop,” which is designed to be completely field-stripped in a couple of minutes for ease of recycling, without the use of tools. One side benefit of their design is that the keyboard/trackpad assembly comes out for wireless operation away from the rest of the laptop.

They should submit this design to our Green Projects Contest.
