Bamboo Keyboards and Mice Are the New Rage in China

Apparently, one of the globe’s biggest polluters has found an environment friendly alternative to plastic keyboards and mice.

Bamboo keyboards and mice are not exactly new on the market, and I’m sure you’ve come across all sorts of wooden peripheral concepts online. Jiangxi Bamboo Technology Development Co. Ltd., the only bamboo peripherals manufacturer in China, says their products have become increasingly popular at a national level, after they’ve been successfully exported to markets in Europe and America.

Production of bamboo keyboards and mice began in 2008, but until early 2009, they’ve only been shipped to foreign countries. But ever since franchised stores opened in Shanghai and Ningbo, China can’t get enough of its environment-friendly peripherals.

Judging from the photos, the Chinese aren’t stopping at just bamboo keyboards and mice, they’re taking it a step further, with bamboo encased LCD displays.

    Well, it is sed those are made by using bamboo. Bamboo is fastest growing than tree.

    Secondly we should still start thinking, do we really need every yea a new computer part or fancy plastic gadget at home.
    If western people start think with their brains , not with their wallets we can maybe save our planet.
    Also the people from Asia and other developing countries should think do i really need 2 or 3 child in family. We overpopulating the planet earth.!

    I was just wondering what a computer with a wooden frame would look like. You make a good point Liiz, we should be focused on trying to mend the planet, not having the newest gadgets. Also I didn’t realize having two or three children was considered excessive.

    Bamboo is a grass, not a tree.
