We all know that major companies have been searching for more environmentally safe ways to maintain our 21st century lifestyles. For the most part, its rather expensive to create the electronics that would allow this. But, LG – A company more well known for their cellular phones, has developed an ecological laptop called an “ebook” that is powered by liquid fuel cells, rather than the standard battery.
The LG’s future laptop uses organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels for display instead of the current liquid crystal display (LCD) panel. This concept notebook received a Red Dot Award nomination for “Best Concept Design” for 2006. Unlike LCD, OLED does not need a frame around it, and it consumes less electricity. The keypad will also be made of a singe OLED panel, like the one used in LG’s Chocolate Phone, according to the report.
Although quite expensive to construct at the moment, LG promises that leading technologies will be used to keep this notebook environmentally clean, and cheap.
Sounds good to me! If it is indeed not that expensive when they roll them out on the floor, I’ll be there to claim one of the first as mine!
