Some people find alternative ways reuse and recycle their hard drives. Priya Ganapati of Wired.com tells the story of Miguel Rivera, a systems administrator, who is one of those people who got creative with the hard drive disposal process. He took a pile of old, used hard drives and produced works of art.
The most complex of Rivera’s creations is a robot he calls his masterpiece. It took about two weeks to create. The robot is made of 14 laptop hard drives with 18 additional discs from gutted hard drives and spare parts.
