Consumer electronics made of wood... For a more organic electronic experience (can you say oxymoron?) Mobiado has produced a wireless handset case made of premium woods; Cocobolo and/Honduras Rosewoods (the same kind used for gun handles, so be careful where you pull this thing out)

Or maybe wood cased flash drives and usb connectors?

Implications - The eco movement has swept its way across a large cross section of consumers. The desire for sustainable products that minimize society's collective carbon footprint is extended to all products and services. Companies that rethink how they build their products to fit with these values will be poised for success.
