Broken iPhones turned into useful artwork
The iPhone parts Mr. Kroener and his team use come from all over the world, so there is a slight chance that your broken phone might become someone else's wall decoration. The Twice Used team currently have around 20,000 broken iPhone screens, but they will need a lot more, because just the coffee table requires about 100 screens. You can contribute to the project either by buying one of the handmade iPhone-themed items, or simply back Twice Used by donating money at their Kickstarter page. So far, they've accumulated $2,367 and they will need at least $10,000 by December 18 in order to get their project funded.
If you are interested in obtaining an iPhone coffee table or simply want to help Chris and his peeps, visit the source link at the bottom of the article.

I think it all looks stupid except the Clock. The clock looks pretty nice IMO

that clock looks so cool, better than when its parts
worked the way they were intended to

"i" disagree with you, it's not stupid. It is, however, like most Modern Art, tacky and déclassé!
Notwithstanding, what was utterly stupid was the time wasted putting that monstrous piece together; and, YES, "i" mean the news article (if you can call it that).

Other than the button bracelet and the clock, they look pretty stupid.

By December 18 they'd have met their target, this is actually a good way to recycle broken glass

the clock is the only thing that looks great. they should make one out of a Samsung Galaxy device... oh wait that would be like using trash.

New or broken this is a better use for them.
