The new recycling program from Samsung finds new applications for old technologies. For example, according to the information published by Bitcoin.com, the company came up with a way to create a mining farm based on smartphones from the Galaxy line.
THE UTILIZATION PROGRAM ALLOWS WITH THE USE OF 40 USED GALAXY S5 SMARTPHONES, CREATE MINING FARM.
Certainly, when creating a “mobile” farm, some technical specifications for smartphones were improved. However, Samsung claims that eight Galaxy S5 can work with excellent energy efficiency, not yielding to a standard PC.
Such a mining farm was presented during the recent Samsung developer conference held in San Francisco. Creation is the brainchild of Creative Lab from Samsung, the inner center of innovation and development, which is located in Samsung Digital City, in Korea.
In addition to the platform for the production of crypto currency, the recycling program also found out that the old Galaxy tablet can easily turn into a laptop with Ubuntu. The company was also able to use the old Galaxy S3, with face recognition software as the basis for a home security system.
UTILIZING SOFTWARE AVAILABLE FOR EVERYONE
The company assured that it would soon provide free software on the network, in addition to the standard one, which would allow Creative Lab Creative to give old devices a new life.
Samsung spokeswoman Robin Schultz told MotherBoard: “An innovative program for old Galaxy devices will breathe new life, providing new opportunities and enhanced value.”
Kyle Wiens, Executive Director of iFixit, the Galaxy S3 repair company, led by Samsung, praised the recycling program. Wiens said that “the new development of Samsung allows you to place under the layer of hardware everything you want. ‘It’s not really a jailbreak.’ The recycling program completely removes Android. ” Wiens describes the program as a way to solve the problem of preserving old electronics by applying new software.
Regarding the mining of the farm, Wiens says that Samsung is thus trying to preserve the value of its devices in the long run.
Currently, Samsung uses the GitHub storage for a recycling program. It is assumed that the storage will be the basis for a decentralized community based on innovative redevelopment of technologies in the future.
