World's first bamboo smartphone

In a world's first, a 23-year-old British student,Kieron Scott-Woodhouse, has designed a mobile phone made from bamboo. The new smartphone, called 'ADzero', which is expected to launch later this year, is made from organically grown bamboo that has been treated to improve its durability.

Scott-Woodhouse, a full-time student on Middlesex University's Product Design course, said he designed the phone in his spare time because he was frustrated that so many existing models looked similar to each other. 

Weighing half as much as the iPhone, the new device will also feature a 'ring flash' to make the illumination of pictures taken with its camera more even.Made from four-year-old organically grown bamboo, which has been specially treated to ensure durability.

The phone is intended to be released in UK in 2012.
