World's first bamboo smartphone to enter production
Concept blower branches out
A British student will see his bamboo blower blueprint brought to market, after backers took note of the ADzero, an eco-friendly smartphone carved entirely from the fast-growing wood.
Conceived by Middlesex University scholar Kieran-Scott Woodhouse, this lignum-lined Android blower is around half the weight of an iPhone. The phone is sculpted out of a single piece of bamboo.
The design has now caught the attention of financial backers, who cobbled together the funds to bring this bamboo badboy to market.
It is said that the ADzero will launch later this year, although no specific details have been released. For further information, check out the ADzero website. ®
At last someone's twigged
It high time someone took a leaf out of natures book and branched out like this. No doubt the nay sayers with shallow roots will bark and holler about it, but they know knot what they are talking about. That old chestnut of all mobiles needing modern materials only should be stuffed away in an old trunk forever. Some people just can't see the wood for the trees, and I for one will never be bamboozled into using a plastic case again.
Wooden you have guessed it ... ?
Android software forks, and now the hardware splinters.
Re: At last someone's twigged
Not only that, but it's back looks like it would make an excellent cheese-cutting board.
that regardless of its eco-credentials, that's the first phone I've seen which made me even think the word "beautiful". No Fruit-based phone's ever done that, nor really has any android or Winmo device.
Wow, I really quite like the look of that. I hope someone involved in the design or backing knows something about designing antennae and has sense checked that this is actually viable for a usable phone.
