    Wooden Keyboard

    Post by Ahmed on Sun Oct 21, 2007 9:21 pm

    So I found this gadget and I thought it was interesting:



    Now this isnt exactly the most environmentally friendly of all computer peripherals, but at least it is more biodegradable than your standard plastic 101-key keyboard. Hailing from Japan, this DIY wood keyboard requires you to actually cut each key out yourself, placing them in the order of your choice. Granted, you would probably choose the QWERTY layout but the weirder ones among you would probably settle for DVORAK or something more original. I suppose this wood was not cut from virgin forests, so dont feel too guilty about picking one of these 200 DIY wood keyboards up. At the very least, you can burn it to keep you warm during the cold winter months especially after oil has just breached the psychologically important $90/barrel mark.

    So what do you think of this keyboard. i think its a classic Cool

    Well wood is natural right? Therefore is it more healthier because plastic is a chemical and is not a natural substance like trees. study

    I wish I had one of those Razz. It looks pretty cool to me. I wonder how durable it is though and if it would give you splinters.

    I still think we need to keep using plastic. We need as many trees as we can keep.

    I think that the more plastic there is is a worse problem than the more trees we lose. Anyways what i dont like is the part that you have to cut the keys, I mean lil childs could cut themselves so that keyborad can only be selled from one age+, lol and if someone cuts a key in half xD poor of him.

    Please don't bump a topic that was last posted in nearly a year ago. Isn't it common sense?

    Dude, the topic is pretty much dead. Nearly 1 year. A month is ok, but not a year.
