Using recycled rubber, Ashcraft, a Los Angeles based design firm, has developed a unique hard drive case. Upon realizing that even most energy efficient home is wasting energy every minute of every day, the design team wanted to contribute to help you reducing your electricity bill. There are a lots of small devices that never completely turned off, yes, each device hardly makes an impact, but added together, they might contribute to a significant portion of your electricity bill. One of these devices is external desktop hard drives that produces extreme amount of heat, which needs to be cooled down. You can use conventional fans but this can be expensive not to mention it consumes even more electricity.
Ashcraft Design introduces Recycled Tires Weave Exoskeleton that provides you with natural cooling process to eliminate the use of fans while creating a unique look. This project blends energy saving method with renewable resources, the unique design focuses on reusing waste produced by tires thrown away every year. Rubber features unique properties that make it ideal for use throughout external hard drives, it provides high abrasion resistance as well as shock resistance to protect your hard drive from impact. You would also love the feel of tactile surface for easy grip.

Ashcraft Design takes advantage of rubber features to create an organic exoskeleton that wraps the hard drive beautifully, bringing internals outside in modern way. The venting becomes major design element in form of beautiful exoskeleton of silky rubber to protect and encase your drive while offering maximum amount of airflow.
Tuvie has received “Recycled Tires Weave Exoskeleton for Hard Drive Cooling” project from our ‘Submit A Design‘ feature, where we welcome our readers to submit their design/concept for publication.
