Any wood I find I stick it in my fireplace.

I have 10 fireplaces.

In my own time, I have thought about "what if robots were made of wood, than just metal (or other)" too. The problem is it's not efficient etc though. It's like saying why don't we throw out all food, or our games, or make our tables out of 1 thin piece of plastic that is too thin to hold stuff.

I still think wood is futuristic... That's how it should be done IMHO.

Bamboo is cool too!

It's not efficient. It's not the right materials. Even if its lighter in weight. And in that cases use plastic or non-growing-mold material nevvvver wood made of circular grown layers from trees that is no no non no.

Some good things about bamboo:
It is a rapidly renewable resource
Bamboo isn't as prone to expansion and contraction as some other woods
Bamboo is very lightweight
Bamboo is incredibly strong

I still 'wood knot' use it for a robot. O0

Their is so many things a robot could be made out of. Metal. Wood. Cells. Silicone, Gold. Materials made of different atoms ex. - oxygen carbon carbon carbon copper carbon then calcium, reapeat-order (covers the robot or makes up parts).

Seeing that, there is a waaaay better particlistic solution (think electron deposit) for each product than "lumber jack wood". There's actually over 7Zvillionatianvb888882 different particle-arrangements that you could have in the universe.

wood knot  ;D

I really like the "Buddy" robot from Blue Frog Robotics. But I'd prefer a build-it-yourself wood kit.

Plastics are really one of the most versatile, obtainable, reusable, lightweight, dependable and creative products we as a people could and do use. Everything from bottles, battery housings, platforms, computers / printers, shelving, lighting, sports, commercial, transportation, building, manufacturing, automotive, educational, scientific, robotics, etc.

We have seen more strides, inventions and uses for plastic(s) than practically any other material in the past 110 years since its creation.

Until something better and more economical comes along plastics will remain in our future.

Hmm...should have bought stock in plastics way back!  :-\

Obtainable? No I disagree. Pumping oil requires huge amounts of energy. And softly killing the planet.

It's more about making money. Plastic is cheap.

Are your furnitures made of plastic? Mine aren't... Plastic is ugly! :)

Zero I actually prefer my palaces to be made out of crystal and glossy white materials, even meta-materials.

There's no wood to describe it.

You git meh?

 :2funny: I got it LOCKSUIT!! You're not into wood!!

It seems to be a sustainable topic. I love it. The topic, I mean. Well wood too.  :D

Now look at this. How about DNA-modified trees that grow with robot limbs shapes?   ;D

That you can do. You can bore out of a moma creature real living wood creatures. We actually have some on earth like that.

You can also bore metal creatures. Femtoengineering counts as giving birth.

Actually your assumption about his crystal ship might be incorrect. There were ships built out of (are you sitting down) Concrete!!

Yes Concrete as steel was in high demand and often in short or limited supply.

SS Atlantus is the most famous of the twelve concrete ships built by the Liberty Ship Building Company in Brunswick, Georgia during and after World War I.

It is all about displacement. O0
