Fujitsu laptop shuns bamboo, goes with cedar

The latest wood-grass trend is already being bucked.


Recent concerns over "greenwashing" probably had nothing to do with it, but Fujitsu has apparently decided to skip the ever-popular bamboo in its version of the wooden laptop. Instead the Japanese company has gone with cedar, the lumber known around the world for saunas and mothballs.

Bearing the inspired name of "WoodShell," Fujitsu's laptop was displayed at the Salone Internazionale Del Mobile furniture exhibition in Milan, according to Gizmodo. There are no details on specs, however, or whether it responds to Pledge. We'll take a wild guess that this is a novelty item more than anything else at this point, so we're sticking with our bet on Asus in the department of wood-grass materials.
