Fujitsu M440 is the world’s first bio-mouse

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2011

Fujitsu has just released the M440, which is the world’s most eco-friendly mouse. For real. Producing this mouse puts less carbon dioxide into the air than creating one with regular plastic. That’s good for everybody. But that’s not all. All of the non-metal parts of the mouse are made from biologically sourced renewable compounds like lignin, starch, and natural resins.

It can even be more comfortable than a typical mouse due to the more elastic nature of the materials. Maybe one day all mice will be made like this. The Fujitsu M440 is just $22.

Liquid Wood could replace everything plastic

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on August 29th, 2010

We use a ton of oil to create plastics for everything from watches to bicycle helmets. It hasn’t been easy to find a replacement material that can be just as tough, versatile and easy to produce, but German inventors have developed a new material that has a lot of promise. It could replace everything plastic using something as natural as wood.

It looks like wood and feels like wood. The material is called Arboform and is produced after combining lignin, a discarded element of regular wood with natural resins, flax and fiber. Arboform is ideal since it can be molded into any object form which is normally made using petroleum products.

Acer Aspire 3811TZ and 3811TZG are the greenest Acer laptops yet

Posted in Acer by Conner Flynn on January 18th, 2010

Acer’s new Aspire 3811TZ and Aspire 3811TZG are two of the greenest laptops you can get. Not in actual color, but in eco-friendliness. They fall into the company’s Timeline series and both 13.3-inch laptops have the honor of being singled out by Greenpeace as being completely free of nasty materials.

No PVC (otherwise known as polyvinyl chloride) or BFR (brominated flame retardants) here. These are powered by Intel ULV Core 2 Duo CPUs, so they are more power-efficient than most and last longer per charge. Nothing on availability and price, but it’s likely that one will be over a grand and one under.

Each one is built from quality electronic components and feature an optical resolution of 1600 dpi, along with microswitches rated for over 1 million clicks. If that isn’t enough, how about a stiff, yet bendable cable that keeps the cord from getting in your way.

LG converts container ship into a huge advertisement for eco-friendly fridge

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2009

LG converts container ship into a huge advertisement for eco-friendly fridgeIn a great bit of marketing, LG is attempting to lure consumers toward its latest energy efficient refrigerator with an unusual launch. The company has designed a 70-meter long container ship disguised as their new refrigerator.

The football field sized ship/refrigerator sailed up the Seine from Le Havre to Paris between June 22 and June 25. The company brags that the refrigerator consumes low power, though we aren’t confident that the worldwide launch of this new LG side-by-side refrigerator was anywhere near environmentally-friendly. But it is clever.
