LG's hippie laptop

OLED screen and biofuel battery make it energy-efficient.

Korea Times

Laptops aren't the most serious of energy hogs. ( Oink, oink. ) But LG Electronics, the Korean company that's made everything from the Chocolate phone to the Swarovski-studded fridge , is hoping to make them even more power-efficient. Treehugger posted recently about the e-Book, which is powered by a biofuel cell and uses organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) instead of an LCD screen. Oh, and it's pretty enough that it was nominated for a Red Dot Award this year.

But if this thing ever hits the market, I bet it'll have one biohazard of a price tag.
