LG's Eco-Laptop Concept

LG Electronics, the second-largest electronics company in Korea, has created a concept eco-laptop called the e-Book. It uses a biofuel cell, and features organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). OLEDs do not need a frame around them, and they consume less electricity than LCDs. The fuel cells of the e-Book use natural gas, methanol, and other eco-friendly liquid fuels. The fuel is stored in a transparent cylindrical hinge. I'm not sure why you would want to switch to fuel-based power on laptops, since they are already fairly energy efficient. This concept notebook received a Red Dot Award nomination for "Best Concept Design" for 2006. The keypad will also be made of a singe OLED panel, like the one used in LG's Chocolate Phone, according to the report. :: Via The Korea Times
