Fujitsu reveals the M440 ECO Mouse, a biodegradable peripheral that promises to be 100 percent recyclable. The mouse offers a 1000 dpi optical sensor and is equipped with a scroll wheel. It will be available in the UK for around £13.20.
The M440 ECO Mouse may not have a particularly exciting or original name, but its design is surprisingly clever. Rather than using the plastics that traditionally make up the shell of a mouse, Fujitsu has replaced the casing with a pair of environmentally-conscious alternatives: Arboform and Biograde.
As alternatives to plastic, the pair of materials are pretty neat. They're designed to be fully biodegradable, come from renewable sources and their manufacturing processes produce far less CO2 than equivalent volumes of plastic.
