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.
