Are you bored of your plasticky tower PC? Maybe you don’t want to buy an iMac and join the turtleneck brigade? Wood Kubb is something new entirely.
It’s a computer made of wood, so
You can choose from three different types of wood: white ash, brown ash and elm. And each Wood Kubb is completely unique, as each is made from a different part of the tree.
It has all the usual connections, including four USB ports, a mini-DisplayPort, mini-HDMI and WiDi that lets you connect a screen wirelessly.
So what about the all-important features? You can choose the processor (Intel Core i3 to i5), storage (128GB to 1TB), memory (8GB to 16GB) and graphics (Intel HD4400 – 5000). But other than that, the specs are standard. You get Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, Windows 10, gigabit ethernet and the aforementioned connections.

And that’s it. It’s certainly different, and a lot more attractive than most PCs. Just make sure you don’t pair it with a boxy old monitor and knackered old keyboard. Might ruin the chic look somewhat.
It’s raised over €16,000 of a €45,000 goal, and has 40 days to go. If it hits its target, it will ship in November. Prices start at €459 (£336) for the early bird, with the standard retail price set at €795.
