    Fujitsu plans to introduce a notebook that aims at replacing plastics and other polymers in the
    metal. The prototype unit is built of cedar wood for the case, while the parts are manufactured using bio-plastic and recycled polymers. According to the manufacturer, bio-plastics are produced from renewable sources such as vegetable oil, and not petroleum, as in the case of regular plastics.

    This eco-friendly laptop is the result of a collaboration between Fujitsu and the Japanese design team Monacca, that specializes in designing wooden products. The Japanese designer has a rich tradition in designing furniture, wooden bags and even a fully-fledged desktop PC casings with a circular shape.

    Even that they’ll manage to create a wooden notebook, it will be very difficult to sell it on the market, because it will have to pass certain certifications, and the most hard one will be the ISO flame-retardation test.
    But who knows what future brings us…
