Who knew that 30 years of mobile technology could make rad electronic music?! Retro pagers and cellphones, including the good ol' Motorola [1] StarTAC, were revived as a mobile orchestra in this incredible video [2]. The artists used samplers [3] and programming to rewire the vintage tech so they could control each ring and buzz and create an awesome electronic anthem! Careful — this catchy tune might get stuck in your head.

The video celebrates three decades of SK Telecom, a South Korean wireless provider. If only we could repurpose all of our tech relics this way! In the spirit of Earth Month [5], let's try to think of other ingenious ways we can reuse our tech. Watch the brilliant mobile tech jam session below.
