Go Bamboo: Innovative Yet Eco-Friendly Gadgets

The fanatic environmentalists can say all they want about how man’s technology is going to destroy Mother Nature, but there are still some people out there who have taken the liberty of taking the cudgels for green technologies. These people managed to create “green” gadgets by combining technology with proven extremely useful byproducts of nature. One of those useful byproducts also happens to be the largest form of grass in the world: the bamboo.

Bamboo Gadgets

iBamboo Speaker

Let’s say you wanted a cheap, lightweight device to boost the sound of the speakers in your business phone or your mp3 player, perhaps to play a file during a meeting or just to play music in your room. You could opt for one of those tiny UFO-shaped speakers tha eggs that are made of plastic, or you could go with the iBamboo speaker. It makes perfect sense—even before the time of Christ, bamboo has already been utilized to make music because its shape is just so naturally attuned to sound. The iBamboo speaker can be a natural evolution of that same traditional purpose of the bamboo. The best part is that it’s electricity free. It’s literally just a hollow, specifically cut piece of bamboo that could naturally amplify the sound from iPhone speakers. 100% eco friendly, easy to manufacture, and if you ever feel the need to toss it out, well, it’s wood so it’s biodegradable.

Asus Bamboo Laptop

While you may feel that the bamboo speaker is a bit of a novelty device, this device is certainly not kidding around. Asus has manufactured a laptop that is being called “a seamless marriage of art and engineering”. While of course it’s not entirely made of Bamboo, the Asus Bamboo Series notebook’s casing of smooth bamboo panels is as close to nature as you can get with a laptop. Each piece is naturally individual, as each panel of bamboo is different. It’s biodegradable, and the fact that bamboo has such “immense tensile strength” makes it incredibly durable and resistant. What better laptop to tote around if you go on a nature walk or a hike?

iZen Keyboard

The thing about bamboo is that with one touch, you immediately feel the familiarity of an all-natural product. Smooth, durable, and rather charming in aesthetic, bamboo’s best features are even more evident in the iZen Bamboo Bluetooth keyboard. It’s an entirely eco-friendly keyboard hand-crafted out of bamboo. Hand crafted means each keyboard is, of course, unique to you. It works with everything from Apple products to Android tablets, and even works with Windows PC computers, Apple Macs, and Smart TV. It’s lightweight and wonderful to hold, and will be the perfect aesthetic addition to the environmentally-conscious techie’s home.

Reveal DJ Headphones

Again, bamboo is called upon in order to take control of sound. REVEAL has unveiled a pair of noise-isolating DJ headphones inspired by Mother Nature. “Well balanced and powerful, offering deep bass and crisp high response.”  It has no PVC or toxic chemicals, and is elegantly hand-crafted. The headphones provide excellent noise-isolation, with natural warm sounds thanks to the bamboo housing. It’s looks and feels incredibly zen, something music-lovers can relate to in terms of finding great sound.

    I knew that bamboo can be a more durable and cheaper alternative for making furniture, but am amazed to see a keyboard and an Asus laptop made of bamboo. This post of yours has actually changed my whole perspective of looking at bamboo.
