The Internet Point this year offers internet access and printing services with 20 recycled computers that are available for use from 13:00 to 02:00 daily.
The collectives Hackerspace Castellón, EngiOn and La Plantilla Disseny, linked to the Universidad Jaume I, once again join forces to embark on joint project taking charge for the first time of managing this space, where they want to prove that not everything that breaks or is damaged stops being useful.
To establish the Internet Point they have developed a complete recycling process for obsolete yet functional and broken down computers, than have been simply replaced by new machines.
Besides the material received from individuals and entities, this group of Engineering students have disassembled each machine piece by piece and reprogrammed them so that they continue to be of use. Even the parts that couldn’t be recovered have served to provide components to repair other computers.
The Internet Point is proof that programmed obsolescence that motivates consumer society and be avoided by rescuing 20 computers from the scrap heap that will be available for you to use in a few days.
