The iZen bamboo keyboard is 92 percent bamboo, because normally keyboards are made from plastic, and plastic is made from oil and we’d rather not.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t exist yet. Which is why you should hop on over to Kickstarter and give the would-be creators of the iZen as much of your money as you can without going AWOL on your rent. (Full disclosure: We have no affiliations with iZen, we just think this thing is incredibly rad.) As of this writing, they’re less than $8,000 short of their goal. Don’t you want to help starving children on the moon by switching away from nasty plastic keyboards?
Look at that sexy packaging. Can’t you just imagine tearing open the UPS box and getting it into your sweaty geek hands?
If nothing else, it’s a much less earth-destroying option than most for channeling your gadget lust.
