Sustainable Android Phone Carved From Bamboo [Pics]

World's first mobile phone designed using organic, eco-friendly material.

U.K. student Kieron-Scott Woodhouse from Middlesex University has created the world’s first smartphone carved from bamboo. The ADzero mobile phone will run on Google’s Android 4.0 operating system and will have a bespoke “AD Android OS User Interface”. The outer bamboo casing is environmentally sustainable and Woodhouse claims that it’s “just as strong as any kind of plastic.” Bamboo has fast become a popular material for designers to work with as it’s flexible, durable, eco-friendly and has an organic and stylish finishing.

Woodhouse was able to actualize his design after being funded from a “technology entrepreneur.” No official word yet on the retail price of the ADzero, but it is expected to go on sale in U.K. design shops by the end of 2012.
