default iPhone Speaker Made from Bamboo, Uses Zero Electricity

Post by Adrian on 18th June 2011, 11:46 am



I think this just might be the greenest speaker for iPhones that we've come across yet. It's a piece of bamboo. And that's it. Just a piece of bamboo...but it works wonderfully.

The bamboo speaker is essentially a 1-foot length of bamboo with a slot carved out of the top for the iPhone to snuggle into. The sound reverberates through the pipe and amplifies the tunes you're listening to. And that's about all there is to this simple speaker -- and it seems to work quite well if you listen to the video:

We've also got to point out that bamboo is one of the most eco-friendly materials this item could use -- not only does it skip plastics and metals altogether, but it's one of the fastest-growing renewable wood sources.

Sourced, but not acquired, a piece of bamboo big enough to have a go at this.

A real shame that I cannot grow it big enough - could be a nice little earner..

Harks back to the days of placing the headphones in a mixing basin on the table so everyone can gather round to listen to the crystal radio. No, I'm not quite old enough to have done that myself !
