If you're looking for an alternative building material that doesn't harm the environment and isn't on the endangered list, then bamboo is the wood for you. OK, so it's technically a grass, but cut it down and polish it up, and it looks stunning. So what tech gadgets can be made with this quick growing plant? Look no further than the eco-friendly bamboo optical mouse.
Manufactured by playengine, this optical mouse replaces the hard plastic outside with a smooth bamboo finish that adds a touch of class to any office, and I would bet looks spiffy next to the wooden laptop. It's probably the classiest mouse you can get for $40. A bamboo keyboard and monitor are also available.
