Bamboo Keyboard and Mouse

September 30th, 2010 BY slowbuddha | No Comments

I can very honestly say that I never would have thought of this. When I think of a computer or any related electronic device, an image of a metal, plastic, and rubber gadget pops into my head every time. Needless to say, for some electronics designer out there, the presumption I have come to know just isn’t true.

These fulling functioning mouse and keyboard are made out of one of the most sustainable resources in the world, bamboo. The reason that bamboo is such an important natural resource is that, unlike other plants grown and cut for their wood, bamboo grows fast. A perennial evergreen by definition, bamboo can grow around 60cm a day under the right climate and water conditions. The plant has been recorded as growing 200cm in a 24 hour period. Bamboo is by far the fastest wood producing plant in the world, no comparison necessary.

But back to the original point… The bamboo keyboard and mouse is equipped with a USB connection, making it as versatile as any other combo on the market. The wood exterior gives the set a fresh and natural appearance. Check out this website for more details. For 52USD, this beautiful combo could decorate your desk. I don’t know about you, but I think the keyboard looks pretty sleek, in a NOT cold and lifeless kind of way.
