A company called Fabrik has announced the release of an energy-efficient green gadget, an external hard drive utilizing a low power hard disk, and a case made from recycled materials. The drive has no noisy fans (which also cuts down on power consumption), and the case is made using recycled aluminum to efficiently dissipate the heat. The case also features some fancy sustainable bamboo trim to give the drive a natural and organic look.
The hard drive is entirely useful too, coming in a 500GB model, compatible with both Windows and Mac, and using Turbo USB 2.0 to make it up to 25% faster than conventional USB 2.0. On top of all that, the drive comes with completely eco-friendly packaging that can be recycled (i.e. no plastic!). Most external hard drives seem to come with tonnes of packaging, so any reduction in plastic packaging is great.
A neat looking drive, designed from the start with the environment in mind and energy-efficient. Top stuff!
