To get rid of the grown complexities of today's computers an Austrian goes back to the roots and builds simplified computers from wood. GraceTech, founded by Raphael Langerhorst, developed a simple touchscreencomputer running on an ARMCPU and NetBSDLinux. The screen size is 7.6-inch and the weight of the device is 0.7kg.
The GraceTech computer is using only 4W and the batteries hold for 4 hours. The GraceTech computer is supposed to be closer to the way people work. It is aimed at reducing the complexities and increase sustainability and efficiency.
There is definitely a need for new computing concepts. Apple has shown this impressively with the introduction of the iPad. We will see many more new novel personal computing concepts in the coming years that reduce the complexity of most of today's laptops and PCs. I prefer to Apple's Unibody design to a wooden box.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
