A student team from Stanford and Finland’s Aalto University has designed an innovative laptop that can be easily and quickly disassembled by anyone. The Bloom laptop can be taken apart in just two minutes without any tools as all the electronics inside it are connected with slots, making it easy to repair, upgrade and recycle each of its parts at the end of its life. The laptop scores well in ergonomics too with a detachable keyboard and track pad.

Here’s a video demo of this recyclable laptop:
