Beautiful Bamboo Desktops

This Wood Computer is Designed to Actually Go on Top of Your Desk

— February 13, 2015 — Tech
When people talk about beautifully designed computers, they probably mention Apple products and the sleekness factor, rather than its materials; but this wood computer hopes to change that. Currently seeking finances on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, the Phantom One is a bamboo desktop computer from San Francisco-based One Technology.

The tiny wood computer is scarcely bigger than a six pack of beer and is intended to be placed on your desk with pride. The Phantom One "allowed optimal spacing and sleek design without taking away from the power and performance a desktop should have." So if you abhor the latest Apple trend to go bigger (ahem, the iPhone 6 Plus), this unobtrusive computer is the one for you.

The inside is made using aluminum, but it is encased with an aesthetically appealing acrylic and bamboo shell.
Trend Themes
1. Wooden Technology - The use of wood in technology products, such as the bamboo desktop computer, offers a unique and eco-friendly design alternative.
2. Compact Design - Creating smaller, more compact desktop computers like the Phantom One allows for optimized desk space utilization.
3. Sustainable Materials - The use of bamboo as a material in technology products promotes sustainability and eco-consciousness.
Industry Implications
1. Technology Hardware - The technology hardware industry can explore the incorporation of sustainable and aesthetically pleasing materials, like bamboo, in their designs.
2. Home Office Furniture - The home office furniture industry can take inspiration from the compact design of the Phantom One computer to create space-saving solutions for modern workspaces.
3. Eco-friendly Products - Companies in the eco-friendly products industry can consider incorporating wood materials, such as bamboo, into their product offerings to appeal to environmentally conscious consumers.
