A Chinese carpenter made a laptop by himself using some wood and a used computer.

He just created the wooden laptop for fun, but it actually turned out to work quite well in the end. This saved him a lot of money and saved him from having to buy a new computer.

In addition, this wooden laptop is absolutely unique, and even comes with a matching wooden mouse.

Implications - This moderntique design takes a contemporary piece of technology and fuses it with a retro feel. Many consumers are bombarded daily with technological advancement, so when a company offers a product with an older touch, many buyers are fascinated with this non-mainstream tactic. Companies would be wise to consider how their products can be given a retro makeover.
