Simple Toys Made Out Of Hacked E-Waste
Thinkertoys makes pianos out of old keyboards and is committed to converting the world's tech waste into functional toys for children in developing nations.
ThinkerToys began as a one-man-show with Dhairya Dand who was on a mission to set up an openToys community where designers and engineers would be tasked with creating innovative ways to re-use e-waste. Dand has so far created four ThinkerToys prototype kid modules that encompass the Arduino computer as a platform with added custom chips, code and a fitted kit-specific component like a serial LCD screen, speaker or a VS 1053B MP3 decoder. While these projects are still in their initial stages and are in need of further development, Dand explains his goals in an interview with Gizmag:
