Acer wants to clean the world... with one bike at a time

Acer's Bicyclean is an interesting concept, something that I don't quite think has been done before

Computex Taipei 2013 - Acer had something that was probably hands-down the most unique thing I saw at Computex, the Bicyclean. What is the Bicyclean? Well, it's a three-part process to combat the issues of the growing electronic waste problem.

The first step is that it pulverizes and grinds down circuit boards to the consistency of sand, second it extracts ferrous metals using a magnet, then it separates nonmetals from nonferrous metals with an eddy current rotor. It's an impressive concept, and I'd love to see Acer pushing this across the world. Unfortunately, I didn't hop on for a ride!
