Foxconn Shows Off Bamboo PC Cases

Looking to make your computer a little more earthy? Foxconn is making a PC cases out of bamboo. Sadly, only the front covers are bamboo, but we've got to save some of it for the pandas.

Foxconn has the Bamboo One and Bamboo II, with the first one being for traditional mid-tower form factors and the second for smaller, HTPC applications.

    LOL That might be a bit too trendy for me. ;) Bamboo is pretty versatile stuff though.

    Why isnt the entire thing bamboo? Just the front looks dumb. If they could match the woodgrain and make it a uniform tone it would be a nice look.

    If they made the whole case out of bamboo would it be quieter? That would be interesting to me, and it would look cool enough to be in a home theater set up.

    As it sits now I agree it would be cooler if it was totally bamboo.

    The stickers ruin it. Also not being completely bamboo ruins it too. Nice concept but poor execution!

    The bamboo would be quieter for 1 reason because its thicker then the thin metal but if you want a quiet machine just put rubber matting on the insides of your case etc.

    Reminds me of those station wagons with the faux-wood paneling on the sides. Uuuuugly.
