Now more relevant than ever...
Each year, we're on the lookout for the next big thing in consumer tech. A new camera, faster processors, the latest shiny gadgets to dazzle our digital lives. But behind the allure of the new, there's a question we often overlook: What happens to these devices when they're no longer the apple of our eye?
In this thought-provoking episode, I sit down with Firas Khalifeh, the visionary CEO of Carbon Mobile. Their creation, a smartphone crafted from carbon, isn't just sleek—it's a leap toward sustainability. Made from a material that could, in theory, be sourced from CO2 captured directly from the air, it's a radical reimagining of what our tech can be: as kind to the planet as it is cutting-edge.
So, take a moment, settle in, and prepare to be inspired. Join us as we delve into the innovation that could redefine the smartphone market and make you rethink the lifecycle of your tech.
