The Cathode Ray Tube revolutionised how we saw graphical display and has been around for a good number of years. But due to its high power consumption and bulkiness, the CRT has been replaced with more efficient display technologies like the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) and LED (Light Emitting Diode) and Plasma. The result is a high number of waste CRT tubes lying in warehouses and homes, un-used.
I being a user of the CRT, my old Compaq V570 15 Inch PC screen has been lying around and didnt know what to do with it. In all my electronic experiments, my curious cat has always been watching as I work and the recent cold days in Nairobi have not spared him either. To stop him from sleeping in electical cables when he's bored, I designed the CRT - Cat Residence Tenement. This will see my cat (Patches) get a snoozing home during the day/night. I removed the tube and wires plus cobwebs, cleaned up the corners and laid several layers of cardboard and in the future, include a small blanket.
