Dell has announced enhancements to its concept of moon Modular Laptop, Created to promote sustainability and ease of repair, it now completely dispenses with wires and screws and can be easily disassembled in just a few minutes.
The tech company has insisted it envisions a future in which the disposal of used electronics is reduced, in favor of harvesting individual components for a second, third or even fourth life.
Based on that, he has created Concept Luna, a sustainable PC design that he presented last year and that illustrates his vision of how he can “achieve next level innovation”, as stated in a statement.
Concept Luna’s first design reduced the total number of screws needed from hundreds of them to just four, so that with a simple screwdriver it could be opened and repaired, achieving faster 1.5-hour repairs.
However, Dell has ensured that its team of Experience Innovation Group engineers have worked over the past year to perfect the first model of this laptop, eliminating the need for adhesives and cables and the use of screws.
As a result, Concept Luna “could dramatically simplify and speed up repair processes and disassembly” making the components more accessible, to the point that you can Completely disassemble in just a few minutes.
The manufacturer has insisted that, by uniting the sustainable design of this ‘gadget’ with intelligent telemetry and robotic automation, it has created “something with the potential to trigger a seismic change in the industry and drive circularity at scale.
On the other hand, he commented that thanks to this telemetry, the status of each component can be diagnosed individually, which guarantees that each one is treated separately and prevents products from going to waste.
This is due to the fact that most of the time, users end up discarding a device when registering certain failures instead of treating the element or component that is giving these errors, believing that its useful life has ended.
Dell believes that this modular design is just the beginning of a future that is primarily focused on this design, and that while it is “just a concept” at the moment, it is also “a long-term vision“a commercial and social impact is achieved through practices that take care of the environment and sustainability into account.
