Virtual Mobile Recycling: Get Your Game On

Warm up your keyboard, and check out Mobile Mayhem: The Conveyor-Belt Challenge, a virtual recycling game presented by London's Science Museum. The fine print, up front: This might be addictive. The game is part of "Dead Ringers?" an online exhibition revealing how wasteful your cell phone is, and what scientists are trying to do about it. "Mobile-recycling can cause mayhem," say the directions, "the greenest option is to take every phone apart and recycle all the bits—easier said then done!" This cheeky game is supposed to be hard. The savvy site also offers a slew of factoids (every hour 1712 mobile phones are upgraded in the UK alone) and filmed confessions of "Upgrade Addicts." ::Science Museum via ::Plastics & Rubber Weekly
