Building A PC Case From Spare Shampoo Bottles

FrankZappaProject.jpg A feature of 2009 in Hobart is Batteries Not Included, a tech-influenced art event — and one of the more striking installation ideas is the Frank Zappa Project, a garbage bin for collecting plastic shampoo bottles from delegate hotel rooms to be recycled into casing for machines built as part of the OLPC project. As of Thursday, the bin isn't looking too full, but I'd expect the volume to grow as the conference nears its end and people use up their shampoo. (Alas, I've been unable to contribute myself, as my hotel has fixed-to-the-wall dispensers rather than individual bottles.)
