Design Hara’s diminutive green PC (8.54 x 8.98 x 10.9 inch) can function as a living room entertainment or computing device for the family. It can easily be attached to your TV, projector, or any visual gadget through HDMI and DVI output, and can fully support Blu-ray. The green computer can accomodate a MINI-ITX motherboard, making it possible for the device to run on 60 watts of power per hour or just 30% of energy that most comparable PCs normally require. The device features a solid state 1TB hard drive , 4GB of RAM that can be upgraded to 8GBs, and an Intel Core2Duo processor.

Design Hara’s green HTPC was built with recycling in mind, at the end of the device’s life cycle. The internal parts are fastened in a steel frame, connected by nuts and bolts, and can be easily dismantled and separated when the time comes to recycle the product.

Design Hara

In order to realize design which makes people’s lives rich, we need materials, tools and processes which are compliant to it. Although we put away the area which is mechanized, still we have many areas human has to make it with hands and tools.

Interior work, building maintenance, wall papering and landscape architecture are the examples. Ladders, scaffolds or work stands are playing an important role in work sites. Nevertheless, the role of the work stands is only considered as ‘Foot stand.’

In this meaning, I would like to pioneer this area where design is not still considered in order to raise efficiency, more safety and make it to play pivotal role in sites.
