Recycling seems to be the buzzword these days and if you’ve got a stack of papers lying around that you’d rather not just throw away, here’s an interesting way to recycle them. Chinese industrial designers Chengzhu Ruan, Yuanyuan Liu, Xinwei Yuan and Chao Chen have come up with an interesting concept that will take your pile of papers (printing errors, memos no longer applicable, etc.) and feed them into the machine pictured above. The machine will then tightly roll up the paper inserted around a piece of lead and there you have it, an instant pencil! Given the digital age we’re living in, pencils might seem a little dated, but reassured as there is still plenty of real world usage left in them. In any case it’s a pretty novel concept but if anything it will let you create some pretty unique looking pencils! So, any takers?
