Austrian builds simplified Computers from Wood

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 touchscreen computer running on an ARM CPU and NetBSD Linux. 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.

More details about the GraceTech computer can be found here (German). Via MeinBezirk (German). (Thanks Mom for the tip).
