I'm visiting Portland right now & it's quite the environmental friendly  location!  I'm loving every minute so far.  

Makes me wonder if a concept such as this oxygenated notebook could become a reality one day.  Especially in Portland! :) 

The Plantbook has a battery charging system that is inspired by the water-soaking abilities of the bamboo!

The designers, Seunggi Baek & Hyerim Kim, explain, “The system uses an external water tank, hence the Plantbook continuously absorbs water when soaking it in water and generates electrolysis using power stored in a solar heat plate installed on the top. In this process, it is operated using hydrogen as energy source and discharges oxygen. If you put it into a water bottle while you don’t use the laptop, it automatically charges a battery and discharges oxygen. A leaf-shaped strap hanging on the top is made with silicon. It plays a role of a hand ring and a green LED indicates when the battery is charged. Using this LED, users can check how much spare capacity the batter has.”

Do you think this could ever become a reality?  
Only the future knows for sure...

& for anyone that hasn't visited Portland, this place is amazing!
