How Green Can The Apple Keyboard Be

When it comes to being green, computer makers are not really at the top of the list these days, but with a little help they could be! This is the work of Robbie Tilton; the keyboard has been taken apart and rebuilt using wood and moss. Yes, that green stuff really is organic material and it looks quite stunning too.

These are the details on this cool and green design for the Apple wireless keyboard;

I chose to create a computer keyboard made of wood and moss. I was passionate about creating this because I feel the aesthetic of modern technological objects are cold and lifeless. Surrounded with tech gadgets made of glass, metals, and plastics – I believe that as a society – we are constantly removing ourselves from nature and have drawn ourselves into a motif of objects that are visually very clean, but also visually bland and tactilely inept. What if our technology lived and breathed? If it required us to water it at night in order to allow it to bloom? If it were both visually and tactilely stimulating would user interactions change and would their relationship toward the object change?

This cool looking keyboard is not for sale at the moment, if it were would you buy one?
