Wood! It grows on trees! It’s the most common building material in the world, it can be harvested sustainably, it’s beautiful, it’s nice to touch and look at, and it’s completely ignored in consumer electronics.
But in the past few weeks, we’ve seen quite a few new electronic devices housed in wood, and so we went on a search. A long search, it turned out, for all the best, coolest and most useful products in wooden computing.
We found that wooden computer products did indeed exist, and have for some time, but that it’s not something one comes across in America. In fact, most of the websites we’re linking to here are in other languages. But the pictures, they’re worth more than the words, so check it out. Beautiful designs made of sustainable materials. Mouse, keyboard, monitor, case, even the mouse pad, all now available in wood.
