“Your relationship with this phone will last two years before it’s outdated and buggy.” Imagine if every smartphone came with this label. Frustrated with the throwaway culture around devices, Mashiat asks us to question our current throwaway attitude towards electronics. Mashiat Lamisa, a socially conscious product and design engineer, wants to make tech accessible to all. She loves to harness her innovative thinking and design acumen to find solutions for the most pressing societal challenges. She co-founded Asia’s first electronic device repair community and also takes electronics that cannot be repaired or fixed and turns them into jewellery. Imagine wearing a chipset pendant and earrings from your old phone or laptop. This Changemaker and Climate Action Innovation awardee wants to create a big impact in the realm of electronic waste upcycling. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
