If you think about it, as a society, we’ve moved away from more natural materials (wood, clay, fibers) and replaced them with a massive range of plastic-based compounds. However, plastic materials have a nasty impact on the environment, often taking thousands of years to break down. However, a rather novel green gadget by a UK company is a wooden optical mouse and wooden keyboard.
These rather impressive looking wooden eco gadgets are made from 4-year-old bamboo, which has been aged to give it strength and an attractive look. Unfortunately, the keys are wood-colored plastic, rather than wood themselves, but the idea is great. The keyboard and mouse are completely conventional in operation, so you won’t have any compatibility issues with your computer. And costing just £30 ($60 US) it’s got an attractive price tag too, at roughly just 2-3 times more expensive than a conventional keyboard.
