World’s first bio-degradable computer

Fujitsu has announced that it has developed the world’s first plant based bio-degradable plastics for use in its laptop computers. The company plans to use it in limited quantities in some of its current Biblo range, and intends to make completely eco-friendly casings within 2 years.

Apparently the new plastic is obtained from corn starch, potatoes and other plants, uses less petroleum and energy to produce, and can be metabolized by microbes into CO2 and water. Hmm, sounds yummy. [via GeekNews]
