Mobile Mayhem

To follow up with my cell phone recycling adventures over the weekend... Just spotted this on Tree Hugger - the Science Museum in the UK has an exhibition "Dead Ringers?"

Not only can you find info about ways the UK is recycling cell phone and other e-waste, the exhibition/site raises a few questions that look at the bigger problem: why do we get rid of stuff even though it works? What happens after you drop off your phone for recycling? What are mobile designers working towards doing differently? What are all the toxic bits and pieces that make up your cell?

You can even play a game - Mobile Mayhem - try to recycle the cell phone parts as they float by.
