You did read the question correctly and this idea is genuinely on the verge of becoming a reality. Consider how many computer processors are being created for today’s market and now there has been the thought of how those computer processers can safely have an effect on the environment when they are no longer used. Because a computer processor is used inside many devices this idea would benefit many consumers.
According to University of Wisconsin at Madison, the creation of a computer processor will be done entirely using earth friendly products to do exactly what it needs to be done and when no longer needed that nature friendly computer processor can easily be removed and discarded without concern. Reason being, that computer processor will not harm the earth environment because of how it has been created. What makes this nature friendly computer processor so environment wonderful is how it is created. The creation of the chip is being built from something other than actual metal. There is use of something called flex wood material being used which is hard surfaced yet it is something that can and will degrade over time when left alone over time.
Interestingly, now there is a capability to create computer processors in a layered form just as a metal computer chip is created the difference is these nature friendly processors will degrade over time where the metal processors will not. Perhaps now with up and coming creation of nature friendly computer processors that have been created Mother Nature will be happy and so will the many that are in need of computer devices?
