ABOUT IoDT

In the current state of climate emergency and the specter of a global ecological collapse, the Internet of Dead Things Institute is dedicated to repurposing so-called obsolete information and communication technologies. We create and re-purpose devices, from some of the 50 million tons of toxic e-waste that traditionally end up in landfills each year, into new and open source tools. Our mission is also to educate and empower a broad audience on how to hack and re-purpose obsolete and often black-box technologies in order to design their own tools.
