The team at Iameco (‘I Am Eco’) have created a new eco-friendly, touchscreen wooden laptop that boasts a modular design, meaning that individual components of the laptops can easily be replaced as they wear out or when upgrades become available.

“The laptops use one-third less energy than other models available and have ditched the petroleum-based plastics found in standard computers. Instead, the team uses natural ash, maple and beech harvested from sustainable forests for the laptops’ construction. The company’s v.3 touchscreen computer is the first to ever receive the EU Eco Flower certification, which enforces stringent environmental standards. The company didn’t stop with computers – iameco also designs durable accessories, like keyboards and computer mice, made out of sustainable wood,” reports Inhabitat.
