Aged beyond repair or damaged cars, bikes, SUVs, heavy transport vehicles are among five major electronic waste items. The trash contributed by automobiles include metals, fiber, glass, rubber and toxic material.
The story of changing garbage into gold began during recession period. Rooted in DIY movement, artists started making valuable things out of waste. Changing auto parts into lasting sculptures also began during this time.
Same creative genius, human mind has now found a solution to meet this challenge through art. The automobile junk is now transformed into aesthetic and amazing art pieces in the form of sculptures, home décor and furniture. The chiseled automobile metal parts have motivated artists to carve out bizarre figures to enthuse art connoisseurs.
Through recycling this discarded waste, artists are able to create sustainable objects, while safeguarding the environment from growing pollutants. The scrap is cleaned, recycled and processed and designed into imaginative figures. Artist, who are keen students of anatomy, have generated astonishing and unique sculptures from auto parts.
One who can afford money and space for these magnificent art pieces would never deny owning one for himself. Business magnates or architects of huge public mansions would certainly appreciate value of such sculptures.
Since recycled auto part sculptures are built environment friendly, they are meant to be user friendly as well. These sculptures placed in any public gallery or gardens will enhance the look of the place. It will be an asset to the owner organisation and win the interest of spectator.

4G technology has been kept free from circuit design and it relies more on the packet design thus achieving data transfer in nanoseconds. The main feature of 4G is that it relies on spatial multiplexing. This is primarily a smart antenna system used by ITU (International Telecommunication Union) that is used in the deployment of data transmission and receiving. By using a number of antennas, there is a remarkable increase in the speed and facilitation of the data transfer process. Here are the most recent 4G tablets that are worth a definite look:
