Old printer ink cartridges have been put to creative use after an artist has recreated several famous science fiction characters and dioramas.

Instead of just throwing them in the bin, Faith Pearson created figures like King Kong, Star Trek's famous Starship Enterprise and Godzilla out of printer ink cartridges, reported geek.com. The results are impressive, and show just to what diverse and varied uses printer ink cartridges can be put.

Recently printer ink was used by Epson to 'print out' a replica Acura/Honda NSX Super GT race car, and a designer has even made hip-hop wrapping paper out of ink.

Other uses include recycling ink cartridges. This is now an easy process, saving consumers money in the long-run and working to help the environment, too. Recycled cartridges turn into remanufactured cartridges, and their cost-efficiency is passed on to the customer.

Take a look at Internet-Ink's printer ink cartridge recycling scheme.
