Wood trend branches out again

Calculator is the latest to get the sylvan look


The wood look is definitely in. It's one thing to see sylvan casings for computers, TVs, cameras and even iPod cases, but it's officially a trend now that it's worked its way down to the lowly calculator. Like its recently featured wooden laptop tote, MoMA says the calculator is made from "ecologically thinned Japanese cedar," according to Uncrate. And if you environmentalists out there are concerned about felling trees, you can at least take some comfort in the fact that it's powered by solar energy.
