Lost & Found

Landfills are no longer a dirty little secret and would be hard to deny what role you play in polluting. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have been studying what happens to used and discarded electronic devices. The researchers developed and applied two technologies that allow electronics to send out their locations, once they are tossed out. In an incident the research team at MIT got the opportunity to test it out. Their equipment was stolen but was operational for image capturing and the exact location was reported back. Needless to say pictures of the thieves and the equipments GPS reported information for an arrest to be made and for the return to the team. Soon you will no longer be irresponsible by throwing your electronics “away”, because they Will return.
