A Biodegradable Laptop?
There’s a new gadget on the block for the environmentally-conscious geek consumer: a biodegradable laptop from NEC.
From Near Near Future:
NEC will release this month laptops that use biodegradable plastic.
The plastic is made from materials derived from plants such as corn and is broken down into water and carbon dioxide by microbes. NEC says it aims by 2010 to make more than 10% of the plastic it uses in PCs biodegradable.
It’s great to see a company make the effort to be ecologically friendly. The release date is set to be sometime this month.
