Bamboo is the future folks and, as predicted by our 'Big in 2008', er, predictions, Asus's bambooey creations will be arriving later this year.

It's been showing off a whole range of 'em, including this, the S6 notebook which gets the giant grass treatment over its entire case.

Also eschewing plastic will be the U6 and the 'Concept' bamboo notebook but it's not stopped there. A possible desktop, the Essentio 5110, and monitor, the LS201, are also in the pipeline.

Because it's so fast growing, bamboo is the perfect green material and becomes hard as nails when compressed - not to mention how good it looks.

Just don't leave them near the panda enclosure - or it could end up as lunch.
