A team of engineers from MicroPro Computers and Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration, have developed a touchscreen computer called ‘Iameco v3.’ The micro-computer has a wooden body and claims to be up to 40 percent more energy efficient compared to a normal laptop. In addition, it also has 70 per cent less carbon footprint than a regular computer.

Fraunhofer claims that 98 percent of the device can be recycled. Once the tablet computer is no longer in use, the wooden frame can be transferred to another device. The v3 hopes to reduce computer waste and lower the environmental impact of producing gadgets. The device has received an EU Ecolabel, but no confirmation on price or availability.
