The ballpoint pen made of PlayStations

10 Sept 2007

Quite why anyone is in the position of having to recycle their PS2 at the moment - it's still selling well, there's loads of games for it - but if you have decided to bin off the old dog in preference for a PS3 (prematurely in our view) then there is the question of what to do with it.You could just sling it in the bin, but that's not very environmentally friendly. What about recycling it and then using the plastic to make pens? That's what they're doing in China, where it would appear enough people havedisposed oftheir consoles to melt downand get reformed as abatch of ballpoints.
