Nokia revealed the Remade concept at the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona. The idea is to assemble mobile devices made from nothing new, according to Nokia. "It has been designed using recycled materials that avoid the need for natural resources, reduce landfill, and allow for more energy efficient production," per the company's description on the Nokia Web site.
The phone would be made from recycle aluminum cans. The chassis materials would come from plastic drinking bottles. The rubber key mats would be made from old car tires. "Inside the phone are new more environmentally friendly technologies such as printed electronics, and the graphics used on the display save energy without compromising on style," according to the company.
