    Discarded Ethernet Cables Become Recycled Fashion in Colombia

    [​IMG]

    Environmentalists worry about piles of non-recyclable e-waste, or discarded high-tech equipment. And somehow that's led to an explosion of ethernet cable fashion, as you can see in this recent fashion show in Medellin, Colombia.

    The outfit you see above was designed by students of the Pontificia Bolivariana University in Medellin. Actually, I'm not sure if it's actually made of ethernet cables, or if it just looks like the back of a server rack at my local data center. Either way, this outfit makes me think of a future world where people store infringing wares on their bodies, and a buyer can download just by grabbing a cable and sticking it into her laptop right on the street corner.

    I have no idea what this outfit is, below, but it looks like little plastic explosions. Is it cyborg fur made from more ethernet cables? And what is that weird plastic bulge thing above her crotch? External womb?

    Here is another outfit, straight out of Flash Gordon. Oh how I miss the Hawkmen and the, um, Hawkwomen.

    These are amusing pictures :blush:
    I like this hook, it's like she has talons for a mouth
    like some kind of weird mystical monster

    Referring to the 'external womb' that was mentioned
    it looks like a mask actually, a person's face...
