This machine is called the Fiberizer and is a new form of shredder designed by scientists from Cornell University. It aims to put textiles, destined for the landfill, to better use as materials to create new textiles and other products, reducing the consumption of natural resources and diverting unwanted clothing away from becoming waste. Unlike other shredders, the Fiberizer is designed to allow users to take into consideration what a particular textile is made of, the value of the fibre content and how it is constructed, such as knit or woven material. How exciting! This would mean that perfectly usable materials will not end up as cleaning towels, or as the inside of cars, but will actually be turned into new fabrics.
