Camera made entirely of wood (almost)

Olympus is latest to join the timber crowd

The au naturel look in technology design has given us computer equipment, digital photo frames and even LCD TVs made of wood. But oddly enough we haven't seen too many wooden handheld devices, by comparison.

Olympus apparently wants to rectify this situation with a camera that sports a casing made entirely of wood. Gadgetizer even includes a YouTube video that explains part of the crafting process, though the camera isn't available for purchase yet.

We're not sure if we would buy this particular model anyway, but we do like the look of finished wood over other natural materials used in some recent products, such as stone.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
