The white board is the modern day chalk board, but this handy new device might be a more ecological answer for classrooms. Designed by Yonggu Do and Eunha Seo, the Chalkeeper is an ingenious technology that creates a new piece of chalk by collecting and compressing chalk dust.
As a chalk dispenser and eraser, when a teacher wipes a chalkboard the device collects the chalk particles / dust within its interior shell and recycles the chalk for reuse. Like a never ending piece of chalk! Chalk dust is also an allergic irritant for many children, and by containing the dust the device not only is ecologically friendly but also a creation that keeps in mind the safety and health of those using and around the device.
The Chalkeeper is a very clever idea that is practical, functional and ecological.
